FreeBSD seems to have HFS image file:
so I'm afraid we still needs some tool to create HFS which has
at least one file for complete builds.
(for OF2 machines I think we also need some installboot support btw)

On creating HDD images, size of the image is first,
partitioning is next, and creating file system at last.
So we can use fdisk/pdisk first.

On creating CD/DVD images, a boot file (or image) is first,
creating ISO9660 is next (it includes absolute block numbers?),
then filling MD partition map as a part of boot file of the whole image.

It looks mandatory to make makefs(8) handle partition maps for CD images.
