loopback mount -- how?



Hi. Another seemingly obvious question that's been nagging me...
 
How can I mount a file containing a filesystem? For example, if I 
create or download a cd image, how do I mount it as a file system?
 
Under linux, you can do:
 mount -t iso9660 -o loop /tmp/mycd.iso /tmp/mnt
 
and it just goes. I've tried various things under openbsd to no avail.
Surely this same functionality exists, right?
