I'm not sure about mdconfg, but vnconfig gives the same error with the 

    vnconfig /dev/vnd0d file-name

The solution here is to use the command:

    vnconfig /dev/vnd0 file-name

and then associate the actual device part with the mount command, i.e.

    mount -t [type] /dev/vnd0c /mnt

hope this helps,
