I did this:

In my login.conf file (assuming that all you have to do is change whatever
you don't want to be the default):

nice:\
        :priority=5:

In the user entry I put 'nice' in field 5.

When I rebuilt the login.conf db, nothing seems to have changed for th
user... A 'top' still shows his processes (old and new) with a nice of 0.

Is there something else I'm missing?

If you create a login class in /etc/login.conf and set the priority
capability, then assign a user to that class in /etc/master.passwd (the
class field is the 5th one, it's usually empty), then their priority (aka
niceness) should get set then they log in.  Remember to use the 'vipw'
command to edit the passwd file, and to run 'cap_mkdb /etc/login.conf' to
rebuild login.conf.db.
