https://www.gridbugs.org/ntfs-on-freebsd/ says:

"This is one of the least helpful error messages I can imagine. gpart doesn’t
let you create a partition with type “ntfs” on a disk with a GPT partition
table. You’d need to make a MBR partition table instead."

So, why cannot gpart just create a ms-basic-data partition if the user wants to
create something like FATxxx or NTFS partitions on GPT disks?
