 Sorry, but I can not reproduce it on bare metal with the 8.0 RC sysinst.
 For me it just works fine:
  This is the extended partition manager.  All disks, partitions, etc. are
  listed below.  MBR partitions, if desired, must be created before editing
  the disklabel.  To use RAID, LVM, or CGD: 1) Create BSD partitions with the
  appropriate type; 2) Create RAID/LVM VG/CGD using these partitions; 3) Save
  changes; 4) Create partitions for RAID/CGD or Logical Volumes for LVM.

 Robert is correct, this is supposed to be done on the installed
 domU, as sysinst will insist on creating the partitions you install into
 yourself in the extended partitioning menu (this is a different bug which
 is going to be fixed, along with other gpt related issues, but the
 fix unlikely will be ready for 8.0, so it will likely be in 8.1 only).
