Let me summarise again.
1. In most cases, if the user ever ends up at a shell prompt after
boot because rc_configured is not set to `yes,' that is a problem
with the install program. The install program should be fixed.
2. If the user in such a situation is incapable of figuring out
what's wrong with rc.conf on his own, he's probably incapable of
getting to the point where he'll have a pager available to read
3. In the few remaining cases where something is severely screwed
with the system (due to bad hardware, a power-off during install,
or something like that) the user incapable of figuring out what's
going on with rc.conf won't have a hope of bringing his system to
normalcy, and should just re-install from scratch.
