Ahhhh that explains what I reported a bit over 2 weeks ago to
current-users (Subject: Problems making and booting ISOs in
qemu-system-x86_32). See
It also points at some other problems regarding making multi-boot cds
(for amd64 and alpha, for instance) which is needlessly made impossible.

1. Name conflicts. Amd64 boots want /boot and /netbsd.gz in the
   filesystem (and amd64's /usr/mdec/bootxx_cd9660 is added as El Torito
   boot image apparently).  Alpha wants /boot and /netbsd.alpha.gz in
   the ISO image (and alpha's /usr/mdec/bootxx_cd9660 is added with
   Obviously /boot conflicts, and /netbsd.gz for amd64 ought to be
   /netbsd.amd64.gz too.

   Why don't the bootxx* first stage booters look for /boot.alpha resp.
   /boot.amd64 (before looking for /boot)? And why does the Alpha /boot
   look for /netbsd.alpha.gz but the amd64 /boot not look for
