This isn't technically correct on a couple levels. First, gbde and geli
encrypt block devices. FS's may live on such a block device and then be
encrypted, but then again so could swap. FreeBSD also supports
http://wiki.freebsd.org/PEFS through the ports system and this is actually
an encrypted filesystem.
Additionally I prefer geli over gbde since it supports a wider variety of
feature and is perhaps more secure. See the corresponding handbook and man
pages for details.
