Indeed, the knob labeled "XCOFF_GLUE" was the one I was looking for. I tossed in
the NetBSD linker script, and changed the base address to match the NetBSD loader
for good measure (before I found XCOFF_GLUE). With those, I was able to use
objdump and fixcoff (which would make a great addition to the fbsd tree) from
NetBSD to create a useable loader.
Of course now, I'm going to go back and make sure the other two changes weren't
needed (and perhaps reverting them will make the kernel bootable).
After that, of course, will be getting the onboard ethernet working. :-D
