That did the trick:

# vnconfig vnd0 file.iso  2048/1/1/1
# mount_udf -o ro /dev/vnd0a /mnt                                                                                                                                                      

disklabel was not more usable than before.

Is "2048/1/1/1" reasonable or should different values be used?

I'd like to add a concrete example to vnconfig and mount_udf(8).
