It could be that grub-installer tries to mount with '-t proc' instead of
'-t linprocfs' on GNU/kFreeBSD.  Could be a serious bug as at least
three people have seen this now (including me) and it requires manually
working around from the the installer shell, such as:

# chroot /target /bin/bash
# mount -t linprocfs linprocfs /proc
# update-grub2
# exit

Apparently it is not specific to ZFS.

May be somehow related to http://bugs.debian.org/637684
