NetBSD dstar 8.0_STABLE NetBSD 8.0_STABLE (GENERIC) #3: Tue Aug 28 12:51:59 PDT 2018  scole@dstar:/home/scole/nbsd/cvs/8_0/obj/sys/arch/i386/compile/GENERIC i386
macppc and mac68k iso install images (that will boot) can't be created
without an external tool.

This issue came up in PR 53549, which was created for a separate issue (macppc 601 install media).

Trying to summarize the issue, apparently for macppc and mac68k
 - mkisofs from cdrtools 2.01 (not newer) is required to make iso images,
   newer versions of cdrtools may dump core.
 - it is desired to have the HFS hybrid capability integrated into the
   standard build.
 - apparently, adding support for mkisofs compatible options of
    -hfs -part -hide-hfs-list --macbin -map -boot-hfs-file -apple
   is needed.
 - contains a little more info
