Stan, I'm not aware of anything needed in /etc/rc.conf other than postgresql_enable="YES" I know the argument of which you speak. Lately, I've been using just UNIX domain sockets for access to my databases but I do remember having to use this argument, if memory serves it's the "-i" option, to enable access on TCP (basically, it tells the daemon to open TCP sockets when starting). I would, instead of looking for an rc.conf entry, edit the script that starts the postgresql server in /usr/local/etc/rc.d. From the following link, http://www.freebsddiary.org/postgresql.php, if you're using a recent server, perhaps 8.x, the file will be named "postgresql." If you're using an older server, it will something like, "010.pgsql.sh." Find the appropriate line that starts the server and modify the arguments there. Hope this is of help to you.
