i've FBSD/amd64 62Rp9 installed. kernel & world are my own builds
from latest cvsup.
on boot I see:
"FreeBSD/i386 bootstrap loader"
odd. i'd expect a native loader ...
/usr/src/sys/boot > ls
Makefile alpha/ arm/ efi/ forth/ ia64/ pc98/
README arc/ common/ ficl/ i386/ ofw/ powerpc/
other arches seem to be there ... just not amd64.
where's the src for the amd64?
AMD64 CPUs are backwards compatible with i386; they boot in 16-bit real
mode and only get switched into 64-bit 'long mode' by the kernel later
on. Since both i386 and amd64 start booting in the same way, there's no
need for separate bootloaders.
