Many thanks to every one who replied,
     the builtin LSI controller does not show any progress indicator
     when syncing disks, ie '% complete'; there is no extra arg to the
     'raidctl' cmd that will cause a progress indicator to be displayed.

     only two of the four internal disks can be mirrored with the
     builtin hardware RAID controller, the other 2 internal disks
     can be mirrored with SVM.
