Thanks for the explanation.  I had gone to the ##freebsd channel on Freenode 
for help and had been told to run 

# rcorder /etc/rc.d/* /usr/local/etc/rc.d/*

This showed that I had succeeded in getting jabber to start after mysql, but 
things were still not working properly.  I will email the jabberd maintainer 
about my experience.
