I'd prefer them in /etc/rc.d, but understand that reasoning...

So, attempting to please everyone^Wmost^Wmore than we upset, how about:

- RCD_SCRIPTS_DIR defaults to /etc/rc.pkg.d
- PKG_RCD_SCRIPTS defaults to on, but some platforms can override to default off
- NetBSD changes rc rc_directories to default to rc.d,rc.pkg.d,rc.local.d
