There's no way that I know of the make a CCD partition on a mac68k
(nor an LFS, for that matter), so forget about editing the disklabel.
With RAID, I think, you can force it use another kind of partition,
while ccdconfig(8) doesn't indicate that it really cares about the
partition type at all. Try it.
