That is what makes sense to me personally...having
/usr/pkg/etc/rc.conf, and having the YESses in that file look for the
/usr/pkg/etc/rc.d/ files directly without needing /etc/rc.local
calling full path /usr/pkg/etc/rc.d/ files. I like having packages
separate (save for X11R6, but that's optional).
