Because manual configuration is just that manual. You need to point to
the IP of a name server or set one up on the machine and point it to
127.0.0.1 ... as to the IP for your nic that is assigned in /etc/rc.conf by
doing if_XXX=[network params] for example my main NIC on my desktop is
ifconfig_re0="inet 192.168.11.40 netmask 255.255.255.0"
Note the ip has to be on the same subnet as the next hop router... if you
are multihomed (multiple ISP's for example) then you use routed to
configure stuff beyond just the "default" router
