It turns out that the guided install left a bunch of free space at the end of
the disk, so I could expand my swap after all.
# gpart show
=> 0 29886192 ada0 VTOC8 (14G)
0 27262368 1 freebsd-ufs (13G)
27262368 1492848 2 freebsd-swap (729M)
28755216 1130976 - free - (552M)
Why does the installer leave that space anyway?
