For archaeological reasons, the X61s was able to boot using ZFS on a
BSD partition scheme (Thanks to Allen), the system can also boot from
a ZFS volume with a MBR partition scheme if you *do not* use the stock
FreeBSD boot loader & switch to GRUB, this was tested by doing a stock
install of PCBSD 10.0-RELEASE.
