gpt(8) assumes the device has been passed when invoked & attempts to enumerated the device in src/sbin/gpt/main.c, then ploughs forward.
As a work around I've added a check in each cmd_$command() 
if (gpt == NULL)
   return usage();
which works and has the benefit of returning the relevant usage for the sub command being invoked. On the other hand, I haven't worked out how to hand things in main() to stop right at the start so I only have to deal with the issue in one place.
run gpart show -a
