Just a followup. I was able to get Kismet working un six but only
intermittently. It appears that when kismet sets up the wi0 interface
it sets it into ad-hoc rather than infrastructure mode. I can get it
to work if I change the card from ad-hoc back to infrastructure with:

     # wicontrol -i wi0 -p 1

at _exactly_ the right time and re-run kismet. I'm in the process of
building a FreeBSD 5.5-RELEASE box right now and I will retest this
