Cool, thanks for this!
Can we tweak it a bit to say

.Dl Ic makefs -t cd9660 -o 'bootimage=i386;cdrom/bootxx,no-emul-boot' \
        boot.iso cdrom

i.e. add single quotes to protect the ";" plus add the right path to the 
bootxx file? That seems to work better for me. Not that I could boot it in 
qemu or bochs... :(
