I spotted a couple of things with your rc.conf that could be causing
1) There are a lot of unquoted YES's for enabling services. I don't
know if that could screw thing's up but for form's sake, I'd try quoting
them and rebooting.
2) You seem to have set your security level quite high. I can't find
where they are documented in 6.3 (in 7.0 under security(7)) but it
could be worth a try commenting out the securelevel lines and
rebooting and then setting your security level through sysctl (I
think you can do that).
