Given that for a FreeBSD jail one clones the lo interface and assigns
a different address than say what files does one
need to change throughout the jail?

I have modified /usr/jails/jail/etc/hosts,
/usr/jails/jail/etc/resolv.conf and
usr/jails/jail/etc/ssh/sshd_config. I note however that there are a
very large number of configuration files throughout the jail that
contain a literal value of  Do all of these need updating?

Under  /usr/jails/jail/usr/local/etc/ there are also files that
contain as literal values,
/usr/jails/hlldns02/usr/local/etc/rc.d/named for example.  How does
one handle rc.d scripts that specify

If these all require manual alteration then why is not localhost used
instead?  Then one would only need alter the hosts file.
