There is no "brconfig bridge0 up", so the bridge will not be active.

I'm using a similar setup as Julian. In your case I'd suggest you create
/etc/ifconfig.rtk0 with up

in it and /etc/ifconfig.rtk1 with just


in it. Then create /etc/ifconfig.bridge0 with

! /sbin/brconfig $int add rtk0 add rtk1 up

in it. That should work.
