Aha...!  [Well, I did ask if I'd missed out a step... (:-)]

I a) hadn't realized that this had been changed, and b) didn't know
that I was so far behind the curve...

I didn't have to find or compile a new makebootable.  I just used the
one that *had* been installed from the flash drive.  I now boot and get the
expected rev number.

Many thanks,
