 I suppose you could install rc.d scripts to /usr/pkg/etc/rc.d and set
rc_rcorder_flags in rc.conf, but I'm not sure how rcorder will handle a
duplicate script (which will take precedence).

It will execute first script, which is provided later, e.g.:

sh@tatooine:/etc/ > rcorder /etc/rc.d/*
/usr/pkg/share/examples/rc.d/xdm |grep xdm
sh@tatooine:/etc/ > rcorder /usr/pkg/share/examples/rc.d/xdm
/etc/rc.d/*|grep xdm
sh@tatooine:/etc/ >

Unfortunately, rc_rcorder_flags comes first, so xdm will be used from /etc/rc.d.

Can you override the /etc/rc.d/xdm variables in /etc/rc.conf.d/xdm, and ignore the pkgsrc rc.d script? Something like:

  $ cat /etc/rc.conf.d/xdm
