on linux there is a -F option to force a fsck on reboot.  I couldn't
see the equivalent in freebsd.

I have a couple of headless freebsd boxes that if they are ever
tampered with (well, no they are not in secured locations and they are
not secure boxes with keys, they are old pentiums that were salvaged
and run GREAT with fbsd) may need a fsck.  However, I cant ssh into
them and drop them to single user mode to fsck them.  I would like to
just tell them to reboot and do any file system maint that needs to be
done.  But I don't see a way do to it..

any pointers?
