i'm running current as off 10/3 on PWS 500au. when i
upgraded to -current, i no longer see the output of
dmesg in /var/run/dmesg.boot.

# grep dmesg /etc/defaults/rc.conf
dmesg=YES               dmesg_flags=""          #
write /var/run/dmesg.boot

that shows that the flag is set in

and i've not override it in 
# grep dmesg /etc/rc.conf

the file does exist in
# ls /etc/rc.d/dmesg

# cat /etc/rc.d/dmesg
# $NetBSD: dmesg,v 2000/10/02 01:09:23 lukem
Exp $

# PROVIDE: dmesg
# REQUIRE: mountcritremote

. /etc/rc.subr


        rm -f /var/run/dmesg.boot
        dmesg $dmesg_flags > /var/run/dmesg.boot

load_rc_config $name
run_rc_command "$1"

if i run the command manually:

dmesg $dmesg_flags > /var/run/dmesg.boot

then it shows up in /var/run/
