This makes so little sense that I'm actually kind of amazed.

1.) infinite loop? explain?

2.) what does zsh have to do with getting out to the internet?

3.) wtf is a "barebone install on virgin hardware"? What have you been doing
to your hardware that you have specific definitions of virgin and not virgin

sysinstall has had some changes since 7.x, but no changes that would have
affected network service configuration (yet). You ran through the install
and didn't bother reading all of the dialogs before hitting enter, so you
don't have ssh installed. Good job. Don't blame FreeBSD for your ineptitude.
