This is true, a 'zpool import' will likely be necessary. I believe
'zpool import' by itself will just list any pools which ZFS finds by
searching disks in /dev. You will need to 'zpool import <poolname>'
afterwards to actually import the storage pool.
As you've said that it's a clean install, it may warn you that the pool
is associated with another system (I saw this when migrating from
9-Current back to 8.0). You can simply pass -f to zpool import to
safely force the operation.
