Subject: rc.d scripts and "shutdown" keyword

I've changed (ver 1.2) the newly added /etc/rc.d/ipfs script
to check if ipfs=YES in rc.conf. Without this fix the script
might complain about unset $ipfs.

The ipfs script is always executed because of the "shutdown"
keyword. And now my question: is there any better way to
handle this (i.e. scripts which are always executed even
though the corresponding variable might be unset)?
