Oops.  Sorry I missed that.

Well, it almost *has* to be something small and silly, then.  What you
have configured is almost exactly the same as what works for me.
My settings come directly out of the pkg-message for the port, and are:
    # ### recommended settings for running isc-dhcpd
    dhcpd_enable="YES" 
    dhcpd_flags="-q"                    # command option(s)
    dhcpd_conf="/usr/local/etc/dhcpd.conf"      # configuration file
    dhcpd_ifaces="vr0"                  # ethernet interface(s)
    dhcpd_withumask="022"               # file creation mask
    
Assuming that other scripts from that directory are starting properly,
my next step would be to inject debugging output into the script and
look at what actually gets printed to the console at boot.  If you
haven't looked at the existing console output already, that may have
some messages that didn't go into any log files.

Good luck, and sorry I can't be more helpful.
