You may want to take a look at if_lagg, it supports EtherChannel (AKA
fec), LACP and failover modes (Which is what you would need). It is
available in RELENG_6 and Current.
You may wish to take a look at:
rc.conf entries for the example might look like (not tried this):
ifconfig_lagg0="laggproto lacp laggport fxp0 laggport fxp1"
As for the vlan interfaces we use if_vlan and rc.conf snippets look as
ifconfig_vlan1="inet x.x.x.x/24 vlan 1 vlandev bge1"
ifconfig_vlan2="inet x.x.x.x/24 vlan 2 vlandev bge1"
Putting these to together for you use might look like this:
cloned_interfaces="lagg0 vlan100 vlan101 vlan102 vlan103"
ifconfig_lagg0="laggproto failover laggport bge0 laggport bge1"
ifconfig_vlan100="inet x.x.x.x/24 vlan 100 vlandev lagg0"
ifconfig_vlan101="inet x.x.x.x/24 vlan 101 vlandev lagg0"
ifconfig_vlan102="inet x.x.x.x/24 vlan 102 vlandev lagg0"
ifconfig_vlan103="inet x.x.x.x/24 vlan 103 vlandev lagg0"
