If you're asking for an installer which requires bitmapped graphics and won't work over a serial terminal or the like, well, I hope the answer is never. Some people have tried before and/or might still be working on a replacement, but thus far, nobody has written one which is widely regarded as better than sysinstall.
Once upon time, there was a Summer of Code projects set to develop a graphical installer for FBSD 7.x. I don't know what happened to it, but also agree there is no need for such a thing. Sysinstall may appear intimidating but it's really quite easy to use once you're used to it.
