No network in mixed FBSD81/90 chroot environment

I have a system running FBSD81 preparing migrate to 90 on a different 
disk, so the new disk and partitions are mounted in /mnt. To build 
FBSD90 on the new disk I mount devfs on /mnt/dev and chroot to /mnt.

Today I finished make build/install world/kernel in /mnt, and now I no 
longer have network access, interfaces are visible with ifconfig but no 
ip is set and can't be set from within the chroot environment.

Is this to be expected? How do I get my network access back?

Thanks, Erik
