I have also noticed this issue, but if I have only once instance of the
entry in rc.conf, everything works fine.  Why not statically define the
IP, though?  That would be the best situation, IMHO.

Hi,
from my tiny amount of experience each time you use /stand/sysinstall it
will append your changes to the existing rc.conf file. In reality that
interface only needs to be mentioned once. If you remove all but one of
the ifconfig_sk0 lines will the interface obtain it's IP when you
reboot?
