I don't understand.
The default, as defined in mk/bsd.pkg.install.mk, is:
I don't understand why you say to change it to one thing and then say it
is not tunable.
Also, if it is not tunable, why does it have "?=" (and maybe I overlooked
I understand the PKG_RCD_SCRIPTS is used to copy the rc.d files into
And it works fine (for the several packages I have tried) even when I
set my RCD_SCRIPTS_EXAMPLEDIR.
The only minor problem is that many PLISTs assume that the examples are
installed to etc/rc.d.
The fix is easy.
