in /etc/rc.conf, add:
autobridge_interfaces="bridge0" <-- whatever you called your bridge
autobridge_bridge0="tap0 tap1 [tapn..]"
forgot to add this:
Create a qemu-ifup script like this:
/sbin/ifconfig $1 up
TEST=`ifconfig -a | grep member | grep $1`
if [ "$TEST" == "" ]; then
/sbin/ifconfig bridge0 addm $1
