Comment (by mjollnirpaul):

 Doesn't ZFS need an extra zfsboot partition of 64k for the zfs-bootloader?
 Or is this bundled inside the freebsd partition on MBR disks?  With GPT,
 your layout should look like this
 [CODE]
 [paul at paul-lifebook ~]$ gpart show ada0
 =>       34  250069613  ada0  GPT  (119G)
          34        128     1  freebsd-boot  (64k)
         162          6        - free -  (3.0k)
         168  241680216     2  freebsd-zfs  (115G)
   241680384    8389248     3  freebsd-swap  (4.0G)
   250069632         15        - free -  (7.5k)
 [/BOOT]
 The extra swap partition is not needed, it's just because I want to have
 crashdumps.
