I'm actually confused that you can get the system disk's /home since the 
script seems to mount a null device for /home! I can see what would need 
to be done to get what you want but I also see why certain things were 
done to setup the jail that way.

Ian you could edit the /PCBSD/portjail/portjail.sh script yourself and 
have your drives mounted that way. I can see some opinions on how or 
whether mounting all/any disk drives (other than boot) would be wanted 
in the shell. I am of the opinion that it should be done because I can 
see some usages in the IT world.
