FBSD and Boot Loaders

Is FreeBSD implementing something along the lines of Grub for the boot loader in this release? I end up having to use GAG -- while this really isn't much of a problem, it would be a "neater" set-up if it was integrated in like most linux distros.

Yep, I know there is the FreeBSD boot loader present. I've never been able to get it to work, however. Yes, I'm sure that this is my problem, but it does seem it could be a bit easier to get installed (I always seem to end up in a endless loop during the install phase of where-do-you-want-to-install-the-bootloader).
