It could be copied to /etc using the standard pkgsrc methods.
Just define in your mk.conf:

RCD_SCRIPTS_DIR=	/etc/rc.d

PKG_RCD_SCRIPTS=        YES  # or set in environment when using pkg_*

And it should install the rc.d scripts to where you expect them. And then
it should be removed when uninstalled.
