If you put your firewall in a file, say /etc/

Example contents:
sleep 50
${ipfw} add 100 allow all from any to any

(remember to make whatever you call the file executable) and in rc.conf I
think it's firewall_script="/etc/" then you could just have the
sleep 50 or something like that at the very top of the script I suppose?
Don't know of any other way....
