    build - separate out the rescue initrd
    * Multiple issues with users crashing at the end of an installworld because
      initrd kldloads an out-of-date vn device.
    * Not a good idea to update the rescue image during an installworld anyway.
    * Make it a manual target called 'rescue' and remind the user at the end
      of the installworld that the target is available, but suggest
      rebooting first.
