In the default configuration of PCBSD 9.0 the avahi_daemon is enabled by 
default however resolving the .local domain does not work. I think it 
would make sense to add an entry for mdns in /etc/nsswitch.conf. This 
would allow pcbcd hosts to resolve the .local domain and enable network 
browsing for kde and gnome.

--diff for /etc/nsswitch.conf--
< hosts:        files dns
 > hosts:        files mdns dns
