Short-term, the gpart(8) man page:
   http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/man.cgi?query=gpart&apropos=0&sektion=0&manpath=FreeBSD+8.2-RELEASE&arch=default&format=html
   Scroll down to Partition Types.

Long-term... don't know.  FWIW, I agree that the program should be 
self-documenting.  That might be difficult with all the partition 
schemes.
