[ipxe-devel] Unable to boot FreeBSD with HTTPS support enabled

This is a weird one..

I recently started compiling with HTTPS support enabled.  Once I did 
that, I was no longer able to boot FreeBSD cleanly.  If I disable HTTPS 
support, FreeBSD boots fine again.

I'm using this as a test:

sanboot http://mfsbsd.vx.sk/files/iso/10/amd64/mfsbsd-10.0-RELEASE-amd64.iso

With HTTPS enabled, this will hang on the bootloader prompt (it should 
auto-boot after 10 seconds, it does not).  With HTTPS disabled, this 
boots fine.

I've checked this against 93acb5d8d0635b8f7726bd993cde4a90a6b1d723 
(super-old, but known good booting FreeBSD) and 
0df7ce96416872931fc7fd3d90dc5781944d41a9 (current HEAD).

Is there anything I can do here?
