There is a failing DHCP request from dhclient(8) in the log, too, which requires an Ethernet connection that isn't present.

I assume this is due to either a /etc/hostname.re0 or a /etc/hostname.vlan0. The re0 NIC is not connected to an Ethernet.

In addition, the vlan0 virtual interface won't function unless the re0 interface is connected to a managed switch capable of IEEE 802.1Q Ethernet tagging, provisioned to send tagged Ethernet frames to the OpenBSD port. Which, if you're using GPRS for Internet ... tends to be unlikely. That's for infrastructures with multiple LANs that share the same switching backplane.
