Thanks for the follow up Dmitry. Right now I've got the typo'd line 
commented out on /etc/rc.conf and am accomplishing this with the line

route add default in an exec on /usr/local/etc/rc.d.

1. what's the difference between these two commands, e.g. are they 
interchangable in this case?

2. other than the potential for a race condition (if that's even the right 
way to put it) is there anything better about establishing dns routing in 
rc.conf than in the rc.d exec on restart?

**3.  how the heck do I give my fbsd box a name on my lan? this has been 
bugging me for a few days now
