I've had success using a combination of gstripe and gmirror to create a
RAID10 over 4 drives:

% gstripe status
      Name  Status  Components
stripe/st0      UP  mirror/gm2
% gmirror status
      Name    Status  Components
mirror/gm2  COMPLETE  da0 (ACTIVE)
                      da1 (ACTIVE)
mirror/gm1  COMPLETE  da2 (ACTIVE)
                      da3 (ACTIVE)

This is a separate data area though -- system boots from some different
drives.  I can't remember if it is possible to boot from a gstripe.
