man gpart, in particular the RECOVERING section. there are 2 copies of
the GPT you have erased only one. See gpart recover and gpart destroy.

By the way FreeBSD-8.2 has the gpart utility so i suppose installation
on GPT is possible. And as far as i have seen, FreeBSD9 seems an
extremely nice release, with tons of exciting new stuff. The new
installer is *very* efficient, the system is fast, even with witness,
I don't see many reasons to come back to 8.2.
