Default FreeBSD boot loader menu is missing

I have a procedure for converting a FreeBSD box to use a mirrored slice for the OS. Everything working fine except that after I've made the conversion I am no longer getting the normal boot menu, the one that counts down 10 seconds waiting for the user to pick on option.

I see a single line showing that the BTX 1.01 loader has been launched, but from there the system simply boots directly with no menu being displayed. I'm obviously missing a step when using gmirror to convert a system over to use mirroring but I'm not sure what. Any advice would be appreciated.
