/rescue/init wrong permissions

I've just cross compiled FreeBSD 9.1-RELEASE i386 for an embedded device.
After some days and reboot, I just realized that the device does not boot
anymore, so I've plugged a serial cable and saw a panic with error :

exec /rescue/init: error 13

I checked the permissions and noticed that permissions are only set to read
on this file :

-r--r--r--  1 root  wheel  5576 10 Feb 2013 rescue/init

On my laptop it's -r-xr-xr-x. I have installed it to my embedded device
with standard targets such as make installworld and make distribution,
which kind of steps set these permissions ?
