Dear Trond,

Can you please show me the contents of your EFI partition with rEFInd? 

mkdir /efi ; mount_msdos /dev/ada0p1 /efi ; ls -alR /efi 

I've tried to install rEFInd manually, it sorta works but menu items
and nice graphics are missing, I guess rEFInd cannot find its config
or libs because I've misplaced its binaries.

My refind.conf
"ls -alR /efi"
