I'm confused something.  The fact that newfs(8) on i386 cannot newfs a
filesystem which is sunlabel(8)ed is true, but it does NOT come with
sunlabel(8) itself.  Obviously sunlabel(8) doesn't need -m option since
it is used on on sparc64 :-)

Anyway how can I newfs a filesystem for sparc64 on i386 box?
