EFI booting amd64

I successfully used /boot/gptboot for booting my GPT based installation 
on a BIOS standard PC.
Now I'd like to make use of the great EFI system on my Intel Server 
(amd64, not ia64!).
How does the EFI system find/boot any loader? I created a "EFI System" 
partition on my GPT disk.
On the BIOS based machine I created a "freebsd-boot" partition instead 
and installed gptboot.
But how can I boot with EFI?
