Thanks for looking into that, Jack.  Turns out we need to patch
/etc/init.d/first-run on line 76 [0]:

: function mark-complete {
:     # Prevent this initial configuration script from running again.
:     echo "Marking Complete..."
:+    mkdir /var/freedombox
:     touch $RUNONCE
:     echo "Done Marking Complete."
: }

I'll do that when I get home tonight.
