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 \
(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.
