What the heck is that supposed to mean? The whole point of using the
pkg_* tools is to manage the installed files!
If you really want to see what the PLIST will look like before you
install the package from source then you _MUST_ run "make extract plist"
and then look at work/.PLIST, and if you do that then, with my changes,
the RCD_SCRIPTS will be shown.
Remember that the needs of a pkgsrc developer the first time around are
not always the same as those of a pkgsrc maintainer -- I'm most
concerned with the needs of the latter because that's were 99.999% of
the time will be spent on any given package.
