I recently installed pkgsrc on a Darwin system tha has only an HFS+ file
system, so I installed it on a UFS disk image. Can anyone tell me how to
mount this image at boot time? I've tried some obvious things like:

@reboot root hdid /path-to/pkgsrc_image

But this doesn't work. Console shows the message:

/sbin/autodiskmount[203]: disk1s2    ufs      no    yes   pkgsrc_image
[not mounted]

and I can't seem to figure out how to get autodiskmount to mount the image.

Does anyone have a successful method for mounting a disk image at boot time?
