1) posting your rc.conf, and card details and the relevant bits of dmesg
would help.

But long time since I ran 4.x on my laptop but istr

man pccardd

will tell you about the -z flag

which will delay daemonizing  pccard until it has probed
and attatched to your card 
and a quick snoop around /etc/defaults/rc.conf 
would tell you about pccard_ifconfig="NO"
which I think you either need to set to "DHCP"
or something like 
pccard_ifconfig="inet netmask"
