   installboot(8) says:

   2.     Use installboot to install the primary bootstrap
          program (usually /usr/mdec/bootxx_FSTYPE) into

          The following platforms do not require this step
          if the primary bootstrap already exists and the
          secondary bootstrap file is just being updated:
          alpha, amd64, amiga, i386, pmax, sparc64, and vax.

   So, I guess I'm alright then.  And next time I'll read the top part
of the manpage as well.

Kind Regards,
