I will wait for my local mirror to sync, but I am curious about this.
From the new rc.inet1.conf file:
# Example of how to configure a bridge:
# Note the added "BRNICS" variable which contains a space-separated list
# of the physical network interfaces you want to add to the bridge.
Setting up a bridged interface will be helpful to get a virtual machine connected to the network. For some scenarios a bridge works better than a NAT solution - a bridged network connection will allow your VM's to be accessible from the network so that you can run network services inside the VM.
See my rc.vdenetwork script for an example of how to setup a bridged configuration which uses VDE to connect virtual machines (QEMU in my case) to the LAN.
This is the configuration I use to build all my packages.
