Funny you got no reply.

This is not necessary. If you copy said file to /boot/device.hints, it
will be read automatically as a loader .conf file and set environment
variables that will be read automatically by the kernel.

If you wish to use alternate configurations without tweaking
device.hints, you can do


And xyzzy will be read. Since device.hints is read right after
/boot/defaults/loader.conf, anything later will override it's values.
