  Modified files:
    usr.bin              Makefile 
  Connect bsdcpio up to the build.
  Starting now, there are two cpio programs in the base system:
    /usr/bin/gcpio  - GNU cpio
    /usr/bin/bsdcpio - bsdcpio
  In addition, there is a symlink:
    /usr/bin/cpio -> /usr/bin/gcpio (default)
    /usr/bin/cpio -> /usr/bin/bsdcpio (WITH_BSDCPIO)
  In particular, WITH_BSDCPIO only controls the
  symlink; bsdcpio is always built regardless.
  Unless there are objections or problems, I intend:
    * to make /usr/bin/bsdcpio available in 7.1
    * to have /usr/bin/cpio default to bsdcpio in 8.0
      (WITH_GCPIO will be an option instead of WITH_BSDCPIO)
    * to leave /usr/bin/gcpio in the tree until 9.0
