The link is to the old handbook, but problem is the same in new handbook;
will update it.
For the time being vnconfig(8) can't add swap file directly;
you will have to add vn file, label and do swapon(8), e.g.:
# vnconfig -c vn0 /dati/swapfile
# disklabel -rw vn0s0 auto
# disklabel -e vn0s0 # add b: * * swap
# swapon /dev/vn0s0b
