Odd. Status shows "no carrier". This means it doesn't think that the jack is plugged into the card.
Wait a minute, did you say you had two lines in /etc/hostname.nfe0. The first line is incorrect. There should be only one line there if you want a static IP:
inet 10.1.1.5 255.255.255.0 10.1.1.255
What's happening is that when you have the dhcp line there, it is sending packets trying to connect to a DHCP server. Since you don't have the network card connected, that fails.
