I think I found a solution that could work.

Using rc_rcorder_flags="/etc/pkg/rc.d/*" in rc.conf or adding 
/etc/pkg/rc.d/* to the rcorder line in rc would be the thing that 
would satisfy me here.  By putting the package(s) startup 
configuration files in there own /etc/pkg/rc.d directory, I can feel 
better about the pkg system remaining seperate from the rest of the 
system yet allow for rcorder parsing on startup when /usr may not be 

Any comments on my proposal?
