i use only disklabel, no fdisk at all. i put partition start sector where
i want - no align problems.
I did not use gpart for now in production as i have no >2TB disk where i
want to do partition at all.
Actually i've got quite a few 3TB disks recently but there are no both
gpart, fdisk or disklabels on them, just single full disk(*) filesystem
for user data.
* - actually gmirror of 3 disks.
