This is where all of us doing Sparc64 development say you are wrong -- / is NFS mounted RW. Back in the SunOS diskless workstations days were this was invented, / was NFS mounted RW.

The very original "solution" was to mount NFS / RW. The move to /conf/default/etc was someone's special needs leaking into the FreeBSD repository. If you want to special case, things be my guest -- add an elif test; but leave RW NFS mounted / alone.
