The hints did not change since forever:
-r--r--r--  1 root  wheel    2030 Feb 10  2001 device.hints

Everything else seems fresh:
-r--r--r--  1 root  wheel    7721 Jan  3 20:34 loader.4th
-r--r--r--  1 root  wheel   35097 Jan  3 20:34 support.4th
-r-xr-xr-x  1 root  wheel  174080 Jan  3 20:34 pxeboot
-r-xr-xr-x  1 root  wheel  176128 Jan  3 20:34 liloboot
drwxr-xr-x  2 root  wheel     512 Jan  3 20:34 defaults
-r-xr-xr-x  1 root  wheel  172032 Jan  3 20:34 loader

There was time, when direct booting of the kernel was working...
