So I guess we're talking about this tool then (quoting from

    table of a PC-type hard disk [...]

    WWW: (outdated)

That's completely different from what FreeBSD's own gpart does.
Just because two tools happen to share the same name doesn't
necessarily mean that they'll also do the same thing.
