I tried this in rc.conf:

ifconfig_rum0="wlan create wlandev rum0 10.0.0.1/24 wlanmode hostap ssid 
CITYOFFICE  wepmode on wepkey 0xf00baaf00baa weptxkey 1 channel 1"

I got this:

rum0: flags=8843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> metric 0 mtu 2290
        ether 00:11:50:cb:52:10
        media: IEEE 802.11 Wireless Ethernet autoselect <adhoc> 
(autoselect <adhoc>)
        status: no carrier


Why "no carrier"?
And I would expect more info on the interface like SSID and such.
