Please forgive the multiple replies to my own post, but in case anybody 
else needs it for their post installation flavor script:

echo -n `ifconfig bge0 | fgrep -w inet | awk '{print $2}'` " "  \ 
`hostname` >> /etc/hosts 

Feel free to add a \t (via printf?) and another awk on the hostname to 
grab and add the shortname from the fqdn ;-)
