Old mac68K utilities ship with OpenBSD 3.1-3.4

OpenBSD 3.0 shipped with newer utilities than later versions of OpenBSD 
(i.e. 3.1 thru 3.4)

OpenBSD 3.0			OpenBSD 3.1 - 3.4
Mkfs_1.47.sea			Mkfs_1.45.sea
Installer_1.3.sea		Installer_1.2.sea

I used the newer utilities from OpenBSD 3.0 for a recent 3.4 install.  
Worked great.  See dmesg below.

It looks to me as if a mistake was made in OpenBSD 3.1, accidentally 
reverting to older utilities, and that that mistake has been propagated 
thru the current release.  If for some reason the reverting to older 
utilities was intentional, that should be so noted in the 
documentation, else the newer utilities should be included with the 

Note:  Although all versions of OpenBSD 3.x ship with Booter1.11.3.sea, 
NetBSD's Booter2.0.0a10.sea works well and offers superior performance 
as it supports accelerated Mac's (while Booter1.11.3.sea does not).  
Booter2.0.0a10.sea should be included, or at the very least the 
documentation should reflect that it works and supports accelerated 
Mac's.  The following dmesg is from an accelerated LC475, which cannot 
be booted without Booter2.0.0:
