Ok, thanks. I'll go ahead with my 9.3 testing, involving a small patch
to bsdconfig while generating the memstick image; in outline, bsdconfig
only looks for local packages if the install media type is _detected_ as
a CD, where that needs to apply to a) memsticks and b) other media types
like a local disk partition if they include a package set as on the DVD.
