Cross-compiling from Debian GNU/Linux 2.2
Having done a "make install" in sys/arch/mvme68k/stand/sboot, I find that
${DESTDIR}/usr/mdec/sboot contains S-records, and
${DESTDIR}/usr/mdec/sboot.srec is a binary file.  This seems odd.  The
output from "make" seems to agree, though:

ixion:/u1/ben/netbsd/src/sys/arch/mvme68k/stand/sboot$ /u1/ben/netbsd/tools/bin/nbmake-mvme68k install
making sure the libsa is up to date...

Note the last two lines, which swap sboot and sboot.srec around while
installing them.  I can't work out where in the Makefile the former of
them comes from.

"make install" in sys/arch/mvme68k/stand/sboot.

Problm *should* now be fixed. 
I'll start a cross-build this evening to verify it, but in case 
of problems, the PR is being left in feedback state.
