From my recent experience, you can boot off the live CD and import the existing pool without exporting it by using the `import -f` flag.
Importing a pool into one system like this removes it off the old system, however the boot pool seems to automatically import -f itself when you reboot back into the real disks instead of the live cd. Not the other pools though, you will need to properly export/import them.
