No problem:

I looked up my solution to the problem because I submitted a patch to fix things. It's here (ports pr #155788):

    http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/query-pr.cgi?pr=ports/155788

After this you should be able to create an encrypted filesystem with cmkdir and attach it with cattach and detach it with cdetach.

I'm pretty sure that I sent these modifications to the cfs port maintainer as a patch to the port. I also probably included a KEYWORD: shutdown in the port to get by an annoying warning and the second startup.
