            Bug ID: 215368
           Summary: /etc/rc.d/netwait script runs too early
           Product: Base System
           Version: 10.3-RELEASE
          Hardware: Any
                OS: Any
            Status: New
          Severity: Affects Some People
          Priority: ---
         Component: conf
          Assignee: freebsd-bugs at FreeBSD.org

/etc/rc.d/netwait needs to run after anything that might be required in order
to start network interfaces.  In my particular case, that was /etc/rc.d/bridge
which is often required when using VNET jails.  Adding "bridge" to the REQUIRE
line fixed the long delay on startup for me.  (Otherwise netwait would run
before bridge.)

I think the NETWORKING target really needs to be split into two: INTERFACES to
ensure that all of the required interfaces are present and configured, and keep
NETWORKING as meaning "basic networking services are actually functional".
