Ah.  Thank you for the response.
I shouldn't have done the -b 64 on boot_h1...

Is there a way to get boot_h1 to actually boot or can I safely
repartition boot_h1 to remove Unused without screwing up everything

Funny thing about that. When I did the initial root_h1 without
specifying the size:

$ gpt add -t ffs -l root_h1 -a 4k wd1

gpt refused to make the partition because it said there was not
enough room.  First time I had seen that, so I backed the size off
so it would completely fill the disk on 4k boundaries as gpt stated.
One 4k more and it said there wasn't room on the disk.
