	/etc/rc.local contains a call to /usr/local/bin/sshd
	(commented out, but present).  IMHO, rc.local should ship
	empty.  Also, we ship sshd as part of the ssh package, so
	if ssh is called, it should be called as /usr/pkg/sbin/sshd.
	more /etc/rc.local
	remove start of sshd from rc.local.  If it is intended as
	an example, create /usr/share/examples/rc.local.  If it
	_must_ be left in, have it call /usr/pkg/sbin/sshd.  In
	the long run, perhaps we need an rc.pkg and rc.pkg.conf
	with checkyesno variables much as used by rc.conf.  Designs
	for such a file span the range from an empty file like
	rc.local to SYSV-style init.d files.  A good workable
	solution would be either a standard format for this file,
	which could then be machine-edited, and/or an /etc/rc.pkg
	which shipped as part of the package system, and instructions
	for building a local /etc/rc.pkg.conf.  /etc/rc.pkg could
	then contain checkyesno'ed sections for each package in
	pkgsrc which could benefit from startup processing
