This assumes that /usr/pkg and /usr/local is available at boot time
(i.e, on the / filesystem). If you add them later into the dependency
tree, they may not get started at the correct time.

The issue of how to support how a package install adds its own rc.d
startup script and configuration to the system has not yet been
resolved (there's been a fair bit of debate on this issue). I believe
the current suggested practice is to copy /usr/pkg/etc/rc.d/foo ->
/etc/rc.d, and add an entry to /etc/rc.conf or /etc/rc.conf.d/foo.
At least, this is what I do.
