The previous PR for this issue seems to be abandoned. See http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/query-pr.cgi?pr=kern/122368 for background information.
I've also noticed the issue with the amd64 port as well. I was not able to get the 6.2 release of amd64 to install for what I suspect is the same issue.
I'm willing to help as much as possible and have a spare drive committed for testing.
Upgrade from 6.2 to >= 6.3 or try to install >= 6.3.
