What is more user friendly -- needed rc.d scripts not installed or 
unneeded rc.d scripts installed but disabled?

(I guess other options are installed and enabled -- or installed and not 

Is there any pkgsrc user who really doesn't want the scripts put into 

I am suggesting we set PKG_RCD_SCRIPTS is YES by default.

I just looked on four systems (first two production, second two are 
every day home usage):

$ ls /usr/pkg/share/examples/rc.d/
famd         icbd-hybrid  named9       xymonclient
icbd         lwresd       rsyncd

$ ls /usr/pkg/share/examples/rc.d/
apache  exim    lwresd  named9  pfspamd

$ ls /usr/pkg/share/examples/rc.d/    
avahidaemon               hal                       slpd
cupsd                     messagebus.redhat         snmpd
dbus                      nasd                      snmptrapd
dhcpcd                    rc.messagebus.slackware   xdm
famd                      rsyncd

$ ls /usr/pkg/share/examples/rc.d/
adeona  dbus    famd    ipa     portmap

I don't know what all these are. But if I received a warning about some 
at boot up I may be curious.

Maybe as an alternative the package maintainer can make a decision on 
whether it should be installed by default.
