NetBSD bootloaders are usually(?) kept in the "stand"  (standalone) 
directory of the architecture specific part of the kernel, and from a 
quick peek at src/sys/arch/cobalt/stand, this seems to be so for the 
cobalt port, too:

 	miyu% pwd
 	miyu% ls boot/
 	CVS        bootinfo.c common.h   devopen.c  prf.c      wd.c
 	Makefile   bootinfo.h conf.c     ns16550.c  start.S    wdc.c
 	boot.c     clock.c    cons.c     ns16550.h  tgets.c    wdvar.h
 	boot.h     com.c      cons.h     pciide.c   version
