No detection of 8169S Gb interface

I thought this item was on the DFLY Hardware compatibility wiki a few
weeks ago, when I bought them, but I'm not sure how I matched them
because I don't see it there now. It is sold as a TRENDnet TEG-PCITXR.

The chipset (RLT8169S-32) however, does seem supported by the re driver.
I just checked HEAD and DragonFly_RELEASE_1_2, but see no differences
that would effect detecting the interface on the PCI bus.

a lot of magic looks in order ...but the installer does not recognize it.

Is this a matter of adjusting, detection code or is it no workie for
good?  (I know this is realtek, so workie can't be good, but I was
looking for under $50 Gb good enough.)
