nextboot.conf on sparc64

It appears that nexboot.conf isn't cleared on boot on sparc64. I tested
this with on:

FreeBSD ultra.home 5.1-CURRENT FreeBSD 5.1-CURRENT #0: Fri Nov  7 23:59:19
GMT 2003     root@:/usr/src/sys/sparc64/compile/GENERIC sparc64

The nextboot command was invoked with:
nextboot -o "-s" -k kernel

I have reason to believe that the problem is due to / being read-only
on single-user boot (which is a good thing for fsck purposes) so the file
cannot be unlinked. When the system boots multi-user though, all
appropriate filesystems are mounted rw, and nexboot.conf still doesn't get
cleared. Then again, I could be wrong... :)

Any ideas?
