This output looks much more promising than what I had found before:

n4rky# gpart set -a active ada0
active set on ada0

But this is the same:

n4rky# grub-install /dev/ada0
/usr/local/sbin/grub-bios-setup: warning: this GPT partition label contains  
no BIOS Boot Partition; embedding won't be possible.
/usr/local/sbin/grub-bios-setup: warning: Embedding is not possible.  GRUB  
can only be installed in this setup by using blocklists.  However,  
blocklists are UNRELIABLE and their use is discouraged..
/usr/local/sbin/grub-bios-setup: error: will not proceed with blocklists.


n4rky# gpart show

   976773134          1        - free -  (512B)

I've assumed there is some incantation to get grub to do the right thing.  
But I'm mystified.
