i've just commited a bunch of changes to the src/etc
files used at boot time (rc*, netstart, etc), and the
periodic maintainence commands (daily/weekly/security/
monthly) with the following effect:

        - remove any local configuration information from example
          configuration files.

        - add configuration (with man pages) for actions take in
          (a) startup scripts, and (b) periodic maintenence
          scripts (such as /etc/daily).  this includes moving
          variables from /etc/netstart to /etc/rc.conf, and
	  the creation of daily.conf, weekly.conf, monthly.conf,
	  and security.conf.

        - fix any errors.  :-)

        - remove security problems from all of these scripts.

        - fix some named/rpc lossage (mostly from jason).

        - don't start sendmail by default.

        - allow netmask to be set from /etc/ifaliases

	- load LKM's from /etc/rc.lkm using /etc/lkm.conf,
	  at boot time.

	- move ldconfig(8) boot info into /etc/

and maybe more i forgot.  anyway, you might want to update
your rc, etc., files.

as always, please send any problems using send-pr.
