We just realized that the net/avahi-app pkg was not included as part of the pcbsd-base package (which is required for the network detection routine to work).
Kris just added that pkg to the base pcbsd system from now on, so it should work going forward. In the meantime, if you just add that package to your system manually (net/avahi-app) the network detection in the life preserver work start working for you (we just re-tested it here and it works fine).
