I found that, in addition to the above, I needed to create symlinks for /
usr/bin/cat, /usr/bin/cut, /usr/bin/clear, and /sbin/ifconfig to busybox
in the initrd image then use the new image as a ramdisk. The emerge rsync
is in progess now...

P.S. I found that turning virtual memory off in MacOS was what was
required to end the crc error--booting without extensions accomplished
this (and more).
