securelevel -1 is fine. This is the default:
quote from init(8):

 -1    Permanently insecure mode - always run the system in level 0 mode.
       This is the default initial value.

Your problem lies elsewhere. I've looked at your rc.conf, and I can't 
really say I can see anything except this:


which should be in /boot/loader.conf (?)
You have a lot of stuff, I would suggest you comment out most of them 
and put them back in one by one.
