You can configure your interface using /stand/sysinstall by
selecting "Index", then "Network Interfaces".  There's a place in the
module to put additional ifconfig arguments.  The
appropriate configuration entries will be added to /etc/rc.conf.

If that doesn't work, you can a script in /usr/local/etc/rc.d.  If you
use a firewall, you may have to reload the firewall rules after the
interface is configured; but you can have the script do this as well.

Best of luck,
