I don't know how different the VAX-architectures bootproms are from the
DECstations, but
Linux/VAX already has  a bootloader running (If I haven't got all this wrong).
Check out http://www.mssl.ucl.ac.uk/~atp/linux-vax/

Perhaps we could get some ideas from him?
(Linux/VAX is also a very interesting port, IMHO.) :-)

As an alternative, I'm trying to compile the netbsd loaders under linux.
