Some more information.  I finally found a keyboard with scroll lock.  The output shows

Starting Network: msk0
Starting Network: lo0

Right after that is:
route: writing to network socket: network is unreachable

It appears that the network doesn't start, but is not logging an error.  The rc.conf file is the same one used in 9.x which worked.  I did try converting from fixed IP to DHCP, but that made no difference.  msk modules are in the kernel.
