I got something wrong:

# make
# make so
# make install
# ./gvirstor load

(everything did right up to this point here)

# ./gvirstor label -v -s 2097152 gvhome /dev/ad3s1d
Unknown command: label
usage: gvirstor help
        gvirstor list [name ...]
        gvirstor status [-s] [name ...]
        gvirstor load [-v]
        gvirstor unload [-v]
Exit 1

It is a 6.2-STABLE from 3 days ago. Seems doesnt
