I'm sorry, I didn't mention that I am using GRUB, not boot(8) as bootloader.
(Because I have Linux system in the same i386 machine, too.)
When using GRUB, /usr/mdec/boot has nothing to do with boot process, doesn't it?

Anyway, I tried copying /usr/mdec/* to the i386 machine.
As expected, it didn't work...
