That's what I thought better, as it doesn't depend on anything else.
My ifconfig.bridge0 is

!ifconfig tap0 create up description "LxMint"
!ifconfig tap1 create up description "MXLinux"
!ifconfig tap2 create up description "FreeBSD12"
!ifconfig tap3 create up description "NBSDc"
!ifconfig tap4 create up description "OpenBSD"
!ifconfig tap5 create up description "Windows10"
!brconfig $int add wm0
!brconfig $int add tap0
!brconfig $int add tap1
!brconfig $int add tap2
!brconfig $int add tap3
!brconfig $int add tap4
!brconfig $int add tap5

(for use by a bunch of qemu-nvmm guests).
