Default problem with static v4 IPs

Please excuse the fact that I'm probably overlooking something really obvious and trivial but I'm stuck.

I have some OpenBSD background but have not worked with it for a number of years. I recently decided to use OpenBSD (4.6) and pf to build a new firewall that I need.

Initially I set both network interfaces to dhcp in their hostname.if files (hostname.fxp0 & hostname.fxp1) just to make sure all the hardware was working correctly. Everything worked perfectly.

I then changed the hostname.if files to set static IPs as follows:

inet w.x.y.z w.x.y.255 description internal
where w.x.y.z is the actual IP (of course).

But when I bring the interface up, I get this result:
         lladdr 00:02:be:28:52:33
         priority: 0
         media: Ethernet autoselect (100BaseTX full-duplex)
         status: active
         inet6 fe80::202:b3ff:fe28:5233%fxp1 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x2
and, indeed, I don't seem to have any valid IPv4 address.

I checked all the man pages but didn't find anything that illuminated me.

Can someone tell me what I'm missing here?
