Hence my email :-)

This is how my rc.conf looks now:
#jail configuration for forest-friend

But still:
[root at cheer /usr/local/share/jailcfg/templates/default/etc]# /etc/rc.d/jail
/etc/rc.conf: jail_forest-friend_rootdir=/usr/jails/forest-friend: not found
jail_forest-friend_hostname=forest-friend: not found
jail_forest-friend_ip= not found
Usage: /etc/rc.d/jail [fast|force|one](start|stop|restart|rcvar)
