Thanks.

For posterity then, anyone who unwisely wishes to give up the hunt and use
this hack, one solution is to add this line to /etc/rc.conf:

local_startup="/usr/local/etc/rc.d /usr/X11R6/etc/rc.d
/usr/local/etc/rc.after_everything.d"

Then create the directory /usr/local/etc/rc.after_everything.d (same
permissions as /usr/local/etc/rc.d) and put a file named hostname.sh in that
directory with this content:

#!/bin/sh
/bin/hostname your_hostname_here

Make the file executable.

-Mike
