	sys/arch/pmax/stand/Makefile is out of date, and you can't
	currently build the bootblocks for the pmax.
	cd /usr/src/sys/arch/pmax/stand ; make

the problem with src/sys/arch/pmax/stand/Makefile is long fixed. 
I have cleaned up the bootblcoks so they build, and Michael Hitch 
is reworking the pmax bootblocks to support a.out symbol loading. 

The medium-term plan is to write an intermediate bootstrap loader 
that can be either loaded from /boot by bootblocks or TFTP-booted. 
The new /boot will load a kernel from either local disk or NFS, and 
set sysctl variables to say where the kernel was loaded from. 

Does this address the specific problems of this PR?
