Got that one - our messages crossed. So:

Let us in on your plans! At the moment I'm trying to get the
latest Xorg server port running.

That is a bit of a problem. I might try and print the partition type
and maybe the name in the sysinstall menu so it's easier to figure
out what's going on.

I'll make sure that's on the next miniinst ISO.

That will be fixed :)

It shouldn't matter too much. FreeBSD ignores the partition type
and doesn't change it.
