Oh good.  There's nothing I want less than to mix system-shipped
stuff indiscrimately with package and local startup scripts.

We might as well install pkgs into /usr/bin/ and /usr/sbin/.

The "right answer" might simply be to have /etc/rc.local.d/ (or
whatever name you like) and change the rcorder call to  include
that as well:

 files=$(rcorder -s nostart ${rc_rcorder_flags} /etc/rc.d/*)

Could be:
 files=$(rcorder -s nostart ${rc_rcorder_flags} /etc/rc.d/* /etc/rc.local.d/*)

(see also /etc/rc.shutdown)
