No, the name "localhost" should be in your /etc/hosts,
along with the hostname you selected. In this case,
something like

        # for localhost:
        ::1             localhost
        127.0.0.1       localhost
        # for your hostname:
        127.0.0.1       bsdbox.local bsdbox
        127.0.0.1       bsdbox.local.

would be okay. You can use ".my.domain" instead of ".local";
".localdomain" is okay, too.
