highpoint hpt372 raid support, or other options?

I keep running into roadblocks...
I'm running fbsd 6.1 release, i386
My HighPoint RocketRAID 1520 (serial ata 2 channel pci raid card) won't
provide me with an option to rebuild the raid 1 array after I've inserted
the replacement drive (the old one has been pulled for a month or so).
I tried using atacontrol to addspare in preparation for a rebuild. I get an
error when using 'atacontrol addspare ar0 ad6' saying something like "device
isn't configured". Yes, I'm sure of the ar0 and ad6 array/device names. Does
atacontrol not support this raid card or is there something I can do to get
this to work?
-highpoint's own management software..
After trying atacontrol I figured I'd give highpoint's driver's a try. They
say they support freebsd 6.1 so this shouldn't be an issue right? Well I
install their driver, which appears to work fine (the first disk is now
da0s1), but then their raid management software won't install. It keeps
looking for old version of libraries (which I was apparently able to get
around by linking to the current libraries) and now it's giving me the
/usr/libexec/ld-elf.so.1: /usr/local/lib/libncurses.so.5: Undefined symbol
Obviously this is a problem with highpoint's own freebsd support, but is
there any way to get around this with FreeBSD 6.x? Has anyone here had any
luck with rebuilding an array using an hpt372 card in freebsd?
So, the basic question: does atacontrol have hardware raid support for this
card? I'm trying to rebuild my array without resorting to backin up and
reinstalling just to get my raid 1 operational again...
and secondly, is there a way to get around the above error with highpoint's
raid software? All I'm trying to do is rebuild my array! :(
