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
Bikers don't *DO* taglines.
