mysql not starting on boot

Since I upgraded to FreBSD 8.0, I'm noticing that mysql isn't starting 
on boot anymore.  It starts fine once the system has booted, and looking 
at the mysql log I see:

100105 17:46:56 mysqld_safe Starting mysqld daemon with databases from 
100105 17:46:56 [ERROR] Can't start server: cannot resolve hostname!: 
Unknown er
ror: 0
100105 17:46:56 [ERROR] Aborting

I use dhcp and ddns in my network, so I'm guessing that mysql is 
attempting to start before the networking has stabilized.  Is there a 
way to make mysql be the last thing started at boot?

I tried adding:


To the init script, but that didn't seem to have any effect.  Is there a 
tool that will run through all the init scripts and tell you the order 
of startup?
