I'm trying to upgrade from 4.8 to 5.2.1, following the step-by-step
instructions in /usr/src/UPDATING.

`make install' in src/sys/boot fails with reason "File format not
recognized", anyone knows how to fix this?

Also, I don't want the bootloader installed on my MBR, I have Grub there
which bootstraps several oprating systems; so, would a successful
bootloader installation write over my MBR and if yes, how do I prevent
