First, I am not sure what you mean by 'virtual machine'.   That may throw
a monkey wrench in things if it means that literally.

But, the main thing I would add is before you do the mount /usr
you probably want to cause root to be remounted read/write so you
can edit rc.conf. To do this, do 
   mount -u /         (or even just mount -a   I think will cause it 
                                              to happen nowdays)
Otherwise root will be mount read only and you won't be able to 
change rc.conf
