Moot. If /usr is not mounted, then /usr/pkg/bin is unavailable, so it 
wouldn't matter if /usr/pkg/etc isn't there. In other words, if we 
did things as they have been suggested (moving the scripts to 
/etc/rc.d and using /etc/rc.conf), and /usr were unmounted when rc 
was running, no packages would be started since the binaries aren't 
there. The scripts are only as good as the binaries that they're
