i'd like to know as well -- i've looked into using vnconfig, but as
far as i can tell that works only w/ files, and not whole filesystems.
it'd be nice to have something that's not a port.

me too ;-)

i'm running an installation of 2.7 (admittedly updated via cvs) which
has swap encryption...was it not in the original 2.7 release? all it
takes is editing /etc/sysctl.conf and rebooting, right? [i suppose if
you use sysctl directl, you may not even have to reboot...]
