That's not 100% correct, since my 715/64 uses bootpd/tftpd too.
David, you may start tftpd -d 0 (=zero) in etc/inetd.conf, so you can see
warnings & transfers on the Log-Console.
tftp    dgram   udp     wait    nobody  /usr/sbin/tcpd  in.tftpd /tftpboot
bootps dgram udp wait root /usr/sbin/bootpd bootpd -d 0 -c /tftpboot
