I ended up reinstalling.  Now I have Yet Another Difficulty (YAD tm
pending).

After the install using the ZFS - MBR(BIOS) (no-encryption) options I
rebooted from the hdd.  Everything went fine.  I have both the console
and an ssh session logged in.  I installed bash.  So far so good.

However, when I run 'freebsd-update fetch' I see this error:

src component not installed. skipped
Cannot identify running kernel

So, where is the kernel and how did the system start?
