 the /etc/issue connection

the topic mentions /etc/issue, because that's where the pre-login message is read from on many other unix systems... but the text doesn't mention how to make freebsd get it from there.

here's how:

just add an "if=/etc/issue" field to the default section of /etc/gettytab.
