Here's the updated patch:

Jason, could you please review this?

Summary of changes:

 - Make sure not to build uml driver as it's useless on FreeBSD
 - Enable bhyve by default on 10.0 and newer on amd64
 - Fix sample config handling to work with staging
 - Fix bhyve detection in the configure script
 - Add a patch to fix segfaults in case of problems with bridge
 - Enable networking port and install default networking definition;
   add dnsmasq dependency for that

This patch was created by Craig and modified by me.
