In any case, this doesn't work.  It's a bash operator and rc.conf is
run by sh.  I will have to do something else to get the values.
However, I still don't know if I can depend on the order.  Can anyone
tell me that?

Maybe Linux has the right idea.  The ethernet cards are always eth# no
matter what the actual hardware.
