It's trying to mount the whole slice rather than individual FreeBSD 
partitions inside that slice.  I don't know how--or if--Linux has a way 
to refer to those partitions.  The FreeBSD notation would be ada0s1a, 
ada0s1b (swap), ada0s1d, ada0s1e.  "c" refers to the whole disk, not an 
individual partition.

Grub can do it, as can others.  Can't speak to the details, though.
