Did you copy hal's rc.d script into /etc/rc.d?
It is annoying that this is required, but it is. You can make a
symbolic link instead of a copy, but only if /usr/pkg and / are the
same volume. (There are some other knobs you can set instead, but
let's get it working first.)
The reason for all this is that the rc.d/* scripts are scanned early
in boot, before any volume besides / is mounted; so all rc.d scripts
need to be on the boot volume.
