/usr/pkg/etc/rc.conf you mean :-)

I heavily agree that pkg stuff should stay in /usr/pkg - /usr/pkg/etc/rc.d
and /usr/pkg/etc/rc.conf and /usr/local/... as well - but the question is
how to integrate this with the current boot sequence. Ideally we'd be able
to include that in the rcorder, but as somebody pointed out, /usr may not
be mounted at that point :-(
