if you take the script that i recently committed to -current
and -stable (/usr/src/release/picobsd/build/picobsd)
it should work also with 4.x sources

it relies on ports/sysutils/makefs to build
the file system image without the need for
root permissions

one thing you might have to do is increase the fd_size
to 2880 (in the imagename/config file) due to
increased code size
