Ha, I was just posting a similar problem.  I got past that by running
the patch at the bottom of:

then remaking the ISOs.  That let me at least install freebsd, but
I can't get it to boot.  However, I suspect my problems are related to
my attempting to keep a dual boot install and putting freebsd way high
up on the disk.  Your mileage may vary.

If you'd like I can send you a link to my 4.9-stable+patches miniinst
