you can use mdconfig to make a file and newfs/mount it, or as Warner
said mkfs... (I've done the former)...  You can all use GEOM_UZIP
to compress the mfs image down a bit more too...

I used:
makeoptions    MFS_IMAGE="/tmp/mfs.ufs.uzip"   # mfs image
options        ROOTDEVNAME=\"ufs:md0.uzip\"    # Root device

In my kernel config to put the image into the kernel, and boot from
