The process for making the tape image is:

    - get s2.tar.gz from TUHS PDP11 distributions (under research)
    - extract somewhere like /tmp/s2 (if elsewhere, you must edit
      tools/mktape.py)
    - build a tape with the files you want:
      tools/mktape.py /tmp/s2/bin/* /tmp/s2/etc/*

you can add any files you want, but it will make up uid/permission
for files it doesnt "know" about.  It has a table of files and
permissions baked into it that came from the TUHS archive.  The
tool strips off "/tmp/s2" from the paths right now, so if you put
s2 in a different location you'll have to alter that path or you'll
have to build the tape from within that subdirectory using relative
paths.
