5.x separate /boot slice?

I would like to try a separate /boot slice as permitted by FreeBSD 5.x...
But alas it does not appear to be as simple as simply specifying a
/boot during setup. This causes the bootloader to complain about not
finding a kernel given that /boot on the root partition is empty.
Presumably this is too early in the boot process to link <root>/boot
to the /boot slice given that the fstab has not been read yet.
Any pointers on how to get this to work?
Perhaps the boot loader needs to be pointed at the /boot slice rather
than root and a "rootdev" variable fed into a specific loader stage?
I'm not sure!
