After I got this to build, I managed to install the new world, and copy the
new boot1.efi to /EFI/BOOT/BOOTX64.EFI.

Upon reboot, my machine hung at the loader, with the following text on the
>> FreeBSD EFI boot block
     Loader path: /boot/loader.efi

     Initializing modules: FS Backend|

Unfortunately it stopped there and didn't continue.

I was able to recover my system by moving my BOOTX64.BAK to BOOTX64.EFI,
and changing back to my old loader.efi.

Any thoughts of how we can debug this?
