The newest version of source does not include this function.  I have added the old tftp.c (not sure of the date of download) file to the new source(pulled today) and rebuild the undionly.pxe binary and everything started working again.


Confirmed that restoring the strip initial '/' code fixes TFTP booting into WDS.

Please pull from the head of:
