Not claiming any authority here, but i would recommend:

  /			256 M
  /root   512 M
  swap    1   GB
  /var    1  GB
  /tmp    1   GB
  /usr    10
  /home   5   GB
 /usr/jails <the rest>

If your'e feeling very rich , double /home and /usr and maybe swap.

i'd say you can omit that. You can always add more swap partitions if 
needed. /var > 1, maybe 2 GB seems completely inane. 

Any way i think its a good idea to keep the jails partition seperate from the 
hosts /usr.

just my 2 cents,
