Gotta thank people for this again, saved me again this time on a 
non-FreeBSD system this time (with a lot of using a modified recoverdisk 
for OSX - thanks PSK@)... Lost 3 disks out of a raidz2 and 2 more had 
read errors on some sectors.. don't know how much (if any) data I've 
lost but at least it's not a rebuild from back up of all 48TB..

Thanks again.
