Thanks, and to Dmitri also.  This seemed to do the trick.

It is interesting that the default in the 10.1-RELEASE
CD doesn't match the actual OS that is installed.

The server is a web server and poudriere package builder, with some
postgres and mysql databases as backends for the web services.  We
don't anticipate user data or home/project directories.

My first ZFS install was Solaris 11, which recommended (mandated?)
that rpool be from a slice not an entire disk, and boot from
an SMI (VTOC) disk.  So I followed the same convention when
installing FreeBSD.
