sysinstall basically does a chroot into the newly installed root after
doing the installcommit, and then remounts the installation source as
/dist (not quite true, you can mount other sources at this time, but
always to /dist).

After the installcommit, you basically are now at a normal freebsd
installation (ie: /usr/bin and the like are available). You lose
access to your original mfsroot distribution at this point.
