This is what I ended up doing. Thanks for the info!

We were running this on a 5.4 system, and for whatever reason, mounting
from inside the jail wouldn't work , regardless of what I set (sysctl)
security.jail.getfsstatroot_only to. No biggie though. However...

I've run into another problem when I was done setting up this particular
jail. The program that I am trying to get installed inside this jail
works by directly manipulating the network interfaces. Is it possible
to run "ifconfig [if] inet [ip] netmask [netmask]" inside a jail?
