John, Warner,

At this stage it's obvious to me that we'd better with always
building mfsroot stuff, even for platforms that do not provide
floppy installation (AMD64).  As such, the following commit
would be in order, but as it falls under the "obrien vs ru"
category, I hereby ask (again) your permission to commit it:

The release.9 target is responsible for creating mfsroot, amongst
other tasks.
