Re: migrating the NetBSD users guide to the wiki

Just an update regarding possible extra sections that were not present
in the htdocs version.

That section was probably before audiocfg(1). The `11.1. Configuring
the audio device' section was rewritten using audiocfg(1) commands
(that also cover the listing and testing audio devices in - usually!
- a less cacophonic way than directly cat(1)-ing to /dev/audio!).

In both htdocs and wikisrc version print/acroread7 was used as
example but it was removed in pkgsrc (distfile was no longer
available).  As a pretty complex Linux application
misc/libreoffice6-bin was taken as example.

`pkg_add rpm suse_base suse_compat suse_x11' or similar was not
added though: IMHO the main point of (manually) installing such
packages is just to illustrate to the reader about the existence
of them.

A subsection to document packages installing rc.d script was added,
including how to use them and mentioning the PKG_RCD_SCRIPTS
environment variable.

Any feedbacks/suggestions are welcomed!
