I am kind of curious as to if this issue has been resolved and what the
final resolution was.  I just started having the same exact issue as of
today on my little FreeBSD box at home.  I end up having to run the scripts
in /usr/local/etc/rc.d manually after bootup.  I am half tempted to just
call the scripts in /etc/rc.local to get around it.  But, it would be nice
if it would just work like normal like it is supposed to.

Try adding this to your /etc/rc.conf file:
