or just make sure all your rc.d directories are on the root filesystem
and then use this variant of the guts of /etc/rc (setting $more_rc_d in
/etc/rc.conf to point to any of your other rc.d directories):

	for _rc_d in /etc/rc.d ${more_rc_d} ; do
	        if [ -d $_rc_d -a ! -h $_rc_d -a ".$(echo ${_rc_d}/*)" != ".${_rc_d}/\*" ]; then
	                _all_rc_d_files="${_all_rc_d_files} $(echo ${_rc_d}/*)"
	ordered_rc_d_files=$(rcorder ${_all_rc_d_files})
	for _rc_elem in $ordered_rc_d_files; do
	        $debug_echo run_rc_script $_rc_elem start

I've been using this happily and successfully for quite a while now.
