The disklabel doesnt' specify the mount point for partitions, it simply
describes the size and number of partitions.  Edit the file /etc/fstab
to direct init how/where to mount your various partitions that the
disklabel describes.  The disklabel editor that is part of sysinstall
asks about a mount point because it will usually need to automatically
mount your partitions during a new install.
