afaik, all the vinum has been ported to gvinum ...

geom_vinum_load="YES"           # Concatenated/mirror/raid driver

nothing is needed in the kernel/conf file 

I have not tried gvinum with amd64 but on the i386 systems there are a
couple of gotchas I found. After creating the array I find it necessarey
to gvinum saveconfig or it will not be recognized on reboot. Also some
of the commands do not work yet. If you are not using gvinum instead of
vinum, I would start there and see how it goes ...
