Please read about classic MBR vs. new GPT installs:
Of course you can choose _any_ layout with _any_ of the partitioning
mechanisms. But "auto" usually does it differently, so use the
manual approach and define the partitions according to your needs.
With the approach you mentioned above you will get one (!) UFS
partition, rooted in /, containing all the subtrees, so /usr,
/var and /home will be _all_ in one partition. (Note that there
basically is nothing wrong with this idea, even though some admins
prefer to use partitions for separating OS components for a good
