 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.
  * TODO:
  *  - 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)
