Doesn't BootX depend on MacOS (hardly free software). I suppose this could
be rationalised by arguing that a lot of the important parts of MacOS (as
far as BootX is concerned) live in ROM and are firmware/hardware.

Still, this doesn't help me as I've trashed the driver partition on one of
my disks and MacOS won't install anymore.
