Or if one needs to ifconfig earlier in the startup process then put
one's script in /etc/start_if.em0

I don't know what -tso does, but the start_if thing comes in very handy
if one changes the MAC address on a NIC, say, for cable modem use
without "bothering" one's ISP tech support. Also for setting the MAC
address at boot before dhclient starts.
