Is /etc/rc.conf scriptable?

I'm trying to do something to make rc.conf can act conditionally
What I want is:
1. List the wireless access points,
grep if there is one which bssid is 'bb:bb:bb:bb:bb:bb',
if there is, then set ifconfig_wlan0 to the value:
"inet 192.168.1.111 netmask 255.255.255.0 WPA"
2. check if bitlbee has been installed, if so, then let bitlbee
So I tried with following settings in rc.conf, but all of them failed,
i.e., the networking can't be connected and bitlbee service doesn't
if ifconfig wlan0 list scan 2>/dev/null | grep -q 'bb:bb:bb:bb:bb:bb' >/dev/null 2>&1; then
ifconfig_wlan0="inet 192.168.1.111 netmask 255.255.255.0 WPA"
if [ -x /usr/local/sbin/bitlbee ]; then
My question is, how to achieve what I want? The simpler, the better :)
