No, I'm making the entirely reasonable assumption that *during the
installation process* sysinstall can mount whatever the hell it wants
wherever the hell it wants.

Why is this so hard to understand?

If the user wants to create an /inst filesystem *during installation* it
will be mounted as /inst/inst.  If the user runs sade *at a later time*
and creates an /inst filesystem, it will be mounted as /inst.

At that time (when sysinstall invokes sade) there is no $DESTDIR/etc -
sysinstall hasn't yet started extracting the base distribution.
