Have you tried cd'ing to the directory first?

Have you checked permissions?

[freenet-support] Autostarting Freenet on FreeBSD server

How can I get Freenet to start when system starts? 

I tried Freenet_enable="YES" in rc.conf and @reboot entries in crontab but 
it seems that Freenet starts too early and it is missing dependencies. 

Then I wrote my own script to run run.sh with a slight delay
#! /bin/sh
sleep 90
sh /usr/freenet/freenet/run.sh start

and put 
@reboot /usr/freenet/freenet.sh
in freenet's crontab but it still doesn't start on boot. 

I am using FreeBSD 7, have freenet installed in /usr/freenet/freenet and 
run it as user freenet. It works perfectly well (including binding to 
port 80 and custom ip address, great piece of software) when run 
manually.
