The man page on rc.conf indicates that a program/package may be started on boot 
by including the line "program=YES" in rc.conf.  It also indicates that the 
program may be disabled on boot by changing the line to "program=NO'.

For any line in the rc.conf file of the form "program=NO" an error is produced 
on system shutdown with the text "[NO not found".

Commenting out the "program" line(s) in rc.conf produces boot errors that 
"program is not properly configured".

These are minor errors that have been present in earlier releases as well.
Try including "program=NO" and "#program=YES" or "#program=NO" lines in rc.conf 
and observe the bootup or shutdown messages produced.
