I'm not an OSX user, but from glancing at the "diskutil" documentation that Google finds, it seems that it won't work. It can be used to set up a MBR drive, or a GPT drive, but not a hybrid of the two.
While searching the web, I found this page discussing the "gdisk" GPT partitioning tool and it's ability to set up hybrid MBR/GPT disks. Maybe there's some helpful info there (I think gdisk is used by some hackitosh tools).
As for gptsync, I've never needed to use it, but I think it just takes the GPT table and tries its best to make the MBR table the same.

Using gptsync is simply a matter of running "sudo gptsync /dev/rdisk0" from Terminal.
