--- Comment #1 from Nathan Whitehorn <nwhitehorn at FreeBSD.org> ---
This is not part of the default installer sequence because (a) the default
partition type is GPT, for which FreeBSD has no boot manager, and (b) usually
people seem to want a more featureful boot manager than boot0, or have one
already, in the dual-boot case.

We could offer an option to run boot0cfg in the final menu, or a suggestion
that that be done from the offered shell. Would that be a reasonable solution?
