BSD 7.x and earlier use the depracated 'jail -n' to pass a name to a jail. It can be silent with the 2> /dev/null

# uname -r
# jail -m name=asdf
jail: illegal option -- m
usage: jail [-hi] [-n jailname] [-J jid_file] [-s securelevel] [-l -u username | -U username] path hostname [ip[,..]] command ...
#  jail -m name=asdf 2> /dev/null

Nice and silent when you redirect /dev/null....  :)
