FreeBSD 4.11 is fertilizing fields from below for some 5 years or so.
/stand/sysinstall contains option to rewrite bootloader.

And remove duplicate question.

This may be a easier solution:
edit /boot/loader.conf
Look for
#autoboot_delay="10"  or autoboot_delay="10"
change it to (or add this line to the end of the file if you don't have it):
autoboot_delay="-1"
Note default is 10 seconds, -1 means no delay, you can also set it to any # of seconds you like.
