No /usr/X11R6/etc/rc.d?

This is fundamentally wrong, as it forces all the package scripts to
start after all the base scripts.

Why not just have:

	 files=`rcorder -s nostart /etc/rc.d/* /etc/*/rc.d`

in "/etc/rc"; add a dummy "/etc/pkg/rc.d/README and
/etc/local/rc.d/README" to satisfy rcorder, corresponding changes to
mtree/{NetBSD.dist, special}, and that's it as far as the base system

By the way, this discussion belongs on tech-pkg or tech-userlevel, not
on netbsd-users. [Note Follow-up-to header.]
