/stand/sysinstall was moved to /usr/sbin/sysinstall in FreeBSD 5.x --
but otherwise, it's the same program.

As it's an official part of the regular system now, sysinstall will be
updated as part of the usual 'make {build,install}world' process.
Under FreeBSD 4.x, as you note, you have to separately update
