gpart mbr scheme

I'm trying to partition a compact flash card with gpart. When I want  
to create a new MBR scheme it always complains:

-> gpart create -s mbr da0
gpart: scheme 'mbr': Invalid argument

The GPT scheme works fine:

-> gpart create -s gpt da0
da0 created
-> gpart show da0
=>     34  8027645  da0  GPT  (3.8G)
        34  8027645       - free -  (3.8G)
-> gpart destroy da0
da0 destroyed

The kernel driver seems to be loaded:

-> kldstat -v | grep mbr
                 278 g_mbr
                 277 g_mbrext

Does gpart in 7.2 not support MBR partitioning?
