Adjusting partition size with disklabel

long story short, I have a partition on a RAID5 array which after an accident
where I had to rebuild the array became smaller than it originally was. Here's
the original size:

amrd1: 1430505MB (2929674240 sectors) RAID 5 (degraded)

and the new size after the rebuild:

amrd1: 1430400MB (2929459200 sectors) RAID 5 (optimal)

Is it possible to use 'bsdlabel -e' to shrink the partition down to a size
which will fit the new size of the array?

with regards,

Morten A. Middelthon

Which is worse: ignorance or apathy?  Who knows?  Who cares?
