You install the scripts in $PREFIX/etc/rc.d and then let
bsd.pkg.install.mk to install them in their proper place (/etc/rc.d) if
the administrator wants to.
Take a look at net/samba, for example, which uses those "special"
vars to install rc scripts.

/usr/pkgsrc/mk/bsd.pkg.install.mk contains some info on variables.
