Thanks to some suggestions from the freebsd-sparc list (and dd'ing 
the entire drive to zero), I was finally able to get a FreeBSD 
9.1-release booting on the U60 with ZFS root *and* ZFS boot:

{0} ok boot disk
Boot device: /pci at 1f,4000/scsi at 3/disk at 0,0  File and args:

 >> FreeBSD/sparc64 ZFS boot block
     Boot path:   /pci at 1f,4000/scsi at 3/disk at 0,0:a
Consoles: Open Firmware console
FreeBSD/sparc64 ZFS enabled bootstrap loader, Revision 1.0

zpool status:
