Erm, ok I get your point. Because I really want to get this out right
now, I'm going to use:

Attention netcfg users: netcfg is no longer included as part of the

Be aware that rc.conf's NET_PROFILES has changed to NETWORKS, and that
netcfg must be installed separately. For more info, see the netcfg man page.
