You can do this. You setup aliases in rc.conf:

ifconfig_bge0="inet  netmask"
ifconfig_bge0_alias0="inet netmask"

( you need a 32bit mask on any aliases especially ones on the same subnet)

then, if you do this you will see ARP complaints. To quiet that up add this 
to your sysctl.conf:

Hope this helps!
