Probably not needed, see below :)

  SVN rev 181927 on 2008-08-20 13:35:39Z by kensmith
  Recent work on the gnu cpio seems to have introduced some bugs, it
  complains about "Malformed numbers" while unpacking the dists and
  what winds up on the disk isn't correct.  Use this as an opportunity
  to switch over to bsdcpio since at this point we don't even build
  and install the gnu cpio by default.  Note sysinstall needed to be
  tweaked a bit (dropping tape block size setting) because it seems
  bsdcpio doesn't do anything with block sizes, at least as far as
  reading from archives goes.  That wasn't really a problem since
  installations from tape have been broken for a while and the rest
  of sysinstall's tape support code will be removed shortly.
