> I have not found a Linux utility similar to gpart

Umm.... you do know that linux has gpart too, right? Like, it's a 
standard part of most distros, and it's what GParted Live is based around?

But ignoring that for the moment, there are a bunch of other programs 
that do all the same things in basically the same way. For example, 
"sgdisk -Z /dev/sda" and "gpart destroy /dev/sda" both nuke the 
partition information for a given disk.

It's not like FreeBSD has some kind of monopoly GPT stuff or useful disk 
utilities, any other *nix OS has pretty much all the same tools.
