Have you tried setting autoboot_delay in loader.conf?  I believe it 
defaults to 10 seconds.

You could also try adding the -t option to the boot0cfg command issued 
from  I don't know what it defaults to though.  Note that 
this one is specified in ticks, not seconds.  The man page claims there 
are 18.2 ticks per second.
