Hmm -- I do have /etc/raid?.conf files, but I see at about that point
in the boot process
raid0: RAID Level 1
raid0: Components: /dev/wd0a /dev/wd1a
raid0: Total Sectors: 829440 (405 MB)
raid1: RAID Level 1
raid1: Components: /dev/wd0e /dev/wd1e
raid1: Total Sectors: 115647232 (56468 MB)
boot device: raid0
root on raid0a dumps on raid0b
root file system type: ffs
raid0: Device already configured!
raid1: Device already configured!
which suggests that they are auto-configured.
I suppose I could rename those files, reboot, and see what happens...
