ifconfig bridge0 addm sk0 addm sk1 up
ifconfig sk0 up
ifconfig sk1 up

this configuration exists in rc.conf

if ifconfig doesn't print out something like this:

bridge0: flags=8843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> metric 0 mtu 1500
       ether 4a:be:26:65:75:06
       id 00:00:00:00:00:00 priority 32768 hellotime 2 fwddelay 15
       maxage 20 holdcnt 6 proto rstp maxaddr 100 timeout 1200
       root id 00:00:00:00:00:00 priority 32768 ifcost 0 port 0
member: sk0 flags=143<LEARNING,DISCOVER,AUTOEDGE,AUTOPTP> ifmaxaddr 0 port 1 priority 128 path cost 2000000
       member: sk1 flags=143<LEARNING,DISCOVER,AUTOEDGE,AUTOPTP>
               ifmaxaddr 0 port 2 priority 128 path cost 200000

Then you need to add the member interfaces.
