Please give details on your jail configuration: do you manage it by writing
directly into /etc/jail.conf? do you use some utility like ezjail?
If you use directly /etc/jail.conf (or the command line) I think adding something like
exec.start="/bin/sh /etc/rc" and setting /etc/rc.conf properly (in your jail)
