patch for bsdinstall auto script allowing extra components on network install

When bsdinstall finds a local Manifest file it offers the user the choice to install optional system components like doc, games, ports or src. When this Manifest does not exist locally (network install), the distribution components is predefined to base and kernel. No opportunity exists to add in extra components.

To reproduce:
Network boot freebsd installer e.g. through PXE.
Ensure no distribution packages or manifest exist locally.
Ensure bsdinstall is started using auto (default) mode. 
Continue through installation.
Packages downloaded are base and kernel.

Expected to see the Distribution Select list as per a normal installation.

I have attached a patch to auto that brings consistency between network and local installation.
