You can't do this, because if your /etc/rc.conf isn't configured,
what's to say your /etc/fstab is configured? That doesn't just
happen magically; a program has to do it at some point.

The initial install program is responsible for setting rc_configured
to `yes' after it has configured everything else properly.
