Note that there are two ways of doing bridging; that which uses
bridge(4), and that which uses netgraph.  You can set up
the latter by:

cp /usr/share/example/netgraph/ether.bridge \ 
vi /usr/local/etc/rc.d/

(the comments tell you that which you need to change)

But beware: someone I knew moved from one method to the other, and 
left his machine's config such that at boot-up BOTH methods of bridging 
were enabled.  Bad Things (tm) happened.  Don't do this.
