The difficulty comes in using a jail without applying non-supported  
hacks to allow for multiple IP addresses. I think I blew it by not  
putting that in this post. The intent to create a single jail  
supporting multiple legacy sites with their own IPs, was to avoid  
duplicating the memory footprint of httpd and other services by  
running a jail for each IP. One can go to a single IP for all the  
sites, but that may incur resistance that has nothing to do with the  
technical aspects. It appears the natd solution I posted is working  
in test anyway.

Thank you and sorry I didn't clarify completely on the original post.
