Personally, to keep things simple I like to install FreeBSD on a simple UFS
partition.

Once the system is up and running I can then mirror/raid the data drives any
way I choose.

There is a wiki page about setting up FreeBSD on a mirrored ZFS boot drive
though; https://wiki.freebsd.org/RootOnZFS/GPTZFSBoot/9.0-RELEASE
