It looks now /boot becomes too large for bootxx_cd9660:
/* $NetBSD: cdboot.S,v 1.8 2008/05/03 13:07:31 ad Exp $ */
* This is a primary boot loader that loads a secondary boot loader
* directly from CD without performing floppy/hard disk emulation as
* described by the El Torito specification.
* - Support for loading secondary boot loader > 64kB
% tar ztvf base.tgz | grep mdec/boot
-r--r--r-- 1 root wheel 65628 Oct 19 05:31 ./usr/mdec/boot
Shrinked /boot (by disabling unneeded FSes for bootcd) seems also working,
as well as the proposed fix by submitter.
(though I'm not sure why larger /boot still works on some machines)
