The really stupid question (only because it happened to me, but I'm
stupid).  You're not running them in a jail, are you?  In that case, one
has to add early_late_divider="NETWORKING to the jail's rc.conf.  
(At least that fixed it for me, thanks to Doug B. who was 
nice enough to not point out that had I looked at the rc.conf 
man page, I could have found the solution myself.)
