This is not a option in rc.conf default or otherwise ATM.
The proper place to look for changing this: etc/rc.d/wpa_supplicant where
it is hard-written to the start-up script/routine. This should probably be
something that is handled in the default rc.conf through
wpa_supplicant_flags and a default set for them to start from so it can at
least be changed on a per use basis. I could have swore this was already
in place in earlier sources.
