Filesystems that need modules from anywhere else then the root partition 
cannot be loaded from /etc/fstab.
Either make fusefs-kmod install in /boot/modules 
(echo 'KMOD_DIR=/boot/modules' 
>/usr/ports/sysutils/fusefs-kmod/Makefile.local) or mount the filesystem 
using an rc(8) script in /usr/local/etc/rc.d/.
In the end you do not really care whether it's mounted 20 seconds or 1 second 
before login prompt is available.
