This came up in tech-security ...

Now i've wondering why the bootup-scripts doesn't search this directory
just like /etc/rc.d/ too?

It would be much more nicer than move the scripts from /usr/pkg/etc/rc.d
to /etc/rc.d everytime i install a new package or even link it with
/etc/rc.d. (i normally do so)



(maybe it's a little bit off-topic here?)
