Comment(by fitzlt):

 Great news!  Someone found a solution to my problem.  Check here in the
 PCBSD forums:
 http://forums.pcbsd.org/viewtopic.php?f=26&t=15172&p=85659#p85659.  Typing
 "mixer" in a terminal brings up this:

 [lawrence at pcbsd-8111]/home/lawrence(52)% mixer
 Mixer vol      is currently set to 100:100
 Mixer pcm      is currently set to 100:100
 Mixer speaker  is currently set to  75:75
 Mixer mic      is currently set to  75:75
 Mixer rec      is currently set to  75:75
 Mixer ogain    is currently set to   0:0
 Mixer monitor  is currently set to  75:75
 Recording source: mic

 Apparently, mixer ogain(whatever that is) is set to 0 by default.  Typing
 "mixer ogain 100:100" set the value to 100 and I now have full sound.
 This also seems to have worked for several other people.  I will notify
 the FreeBSD-multimedia devs so maybe in 8.1 ogain will be set a value
 other than 0 by default.  Thanks again for everyone's help.
