When checking if ddclient is running or not, via the rc.d script, it shows
incorrect information:

-bash-3.00# /usr/pkg/etc/rc.d/ddclient status
ddclient is not running.

The daemon is running but the script cannot find it:

-bash-3.00# cat /var/run/
-bash-3.00# ps ax|grep ddclient
3861 ttyp0  S    0:00.63 eeping for 129 seconds: ddclient - sleeping for 119 se

Install and start pkgsrc/net/ddclient. Check its running state with:

/usr/pkg/etc/rc.d/ddclient status
