 This bug has existed for at least 5 years, and it is still
 unresolved.  It highlights serious weaknesses in our installation
 tool.
 
 I think as a workaround a special version of cvsupit should be
 included on the installation media that does not prompt for user
 input.
 
 This is really a ports/packages issue, since the alternative (writing
 a new installer / making a major paradigm change in sysinstall), is so
 much more time consuming.
 
 I'm not sure if jkh is still actively maintaining cvsupit.  Someone
 should really provide a patch to that port and post it in this PR
 trail.
