I created the /usr/local/etc/devd/firewire.conf file with

notify 0 {
	match "system"		"IFNET";
	match "subsystem"	"(fwe0|fwip0)";

With this, FreeBSD do not start the network on fwe0 and fwip0

You won't see

Starting Network: fwe0
Starting Network: fwip0

But this drivers are loaded (fwe0 and fwip0), with ifconfig you can see the 
configuration of them
