I commented it out, and it rebooted with the proper configuration. 
The strange thing is I installed the default configuration, did not 
add in the 'network_interfaces' line manually, and have not edited 
the /etc/defaults/rc.conf file. So I'm not sure how it got broken in 
the first place.

Bottom line is all is up and running now.

Goodbye cruel world that was my home-
   there's cleaner space out here to roam
Put my feet up on the moons of Mars-
   sit back, relax, and count the stars
