    installer - Change default /build size
    * /build was previously configured to use 1/3 of the drive,
      but was capped at roughly 20GB.  The cap doesn't really
      scale well on modern systems, particularly since /usr/obj
      and /var/crash are put on the /build partition.
    * Remove the cap and change the configuration to use 1/4 of
      the drive instead of 1/3.
    * Also make a number of other minor adjustments to ensure that
      space is not wasted in situations where swap and/or build
      would be too small for auto-configuration.
