No complete solution, just a few ideas to look into:

1. http://www.freebsd-support.de/misc/setnetparm/
I've never had the chance to use it myself, but it might help.

2. Use the automounter to mount NFS volumes on-demand. This way you will
not have to worry about mounting until you actually need to access the
volume. See amd(8).

3. ipfw supports the "me" keyword, to flexibly refer to your currently
assigned IP address.

4. Just in case it might help you, here is my /etc/dhclient-exit-hooks:

# nothing to do unless we're bound
case ${reason} in
        if [ -n "${new_domain_name_servers}" ]; then
            if [ -z "${old_domain_name_servers}" ] || [ x${old_ip_address} != 
x{$new_ip_address} ]; then
                [ -x /etc/refresh-named ] && /etc/refresh-named 
                [ -x /etc/set-time ] && /etc/set-time

 You should be able to restart your firewall and pass it an argument for
the ruleset in this way.

5. For more variables that are passed to dhclient-exit-hooks, see

5. You can further run ifconfig commands in /etc/start_if.<INTERFACE NAME>
(for example /etc/start_if.fxp0 ).
