9.0 and bsdinstall - avoiding updating the MBR

I'm planning to install FreeBSD alongside a whole range of Windows 
builds for testing. In 8.x it's possible to tell the installer not to 
bother updating the MBR so you can use something like EasyBCD to boot it 
via the Windows bootloader instead. Is it still possible on 9.0-RC2 
using bsdinstall? I don't seem to remember seeing any option to avoid 
writing out the new boot code.
