Description

Currently, installboot(1M) says:

     The x86 UEFI systems load and start boot loader program from /EFI/Boot
     directory of the EFI System Partition (ESP).  The boot loader program in
     ESP is named bootx86.efi for AMD64 system and bootia32.efi for i386
     system.  Note, only a 64-bit kernel is supported, even on i386 systems.
     The bootia32.efi boot program is only provided to support systems with
     32-bit UEFI firmware, but which can support 64-bit mode.

     The bootx86.efi is copied from /boot/loader64.efi and bootia32.efi is
     copied from /boot/loader32.efi.

The 64-bit loader is actually bootx64.efi
