Installing nanobsd on freebsd

I haven't actually seen this explicitly stated anywhere, as I'm guessing it's obvious to FreeBSDers how to get the nanobsd tool installed. For those of us who are more into linux, it's not so obvious or straightforward (ie, it's not sudo apt-get install nanobsd). Instead, you have to log in as root, run sysinstall, choose Configure, then Distributions, then src, then tools (I added base and sys as well - dunno if they're actually needed or not). sysinstall will then install nanobsd into /usr/src/tools/tools/nanobsd (yes, tools is twice).
