I have been using PKG_RCD_SCRIPTS=YES for a couple years on a few systems
(some with pkgsrc and some with all binary packages) and it has appeared
to work fine. My only problem is the complaint:

Sep 15 06:27:00 puget logger: /etc/rc: WARNING: $cupsd is not set properly
- see rc.conf(5).

(and other variables).

It is not a real problem though. The wording could be better though;
maybe like "WARNING: $cupsd is not set properly for /etc/rc.d/cupsd - see

warn "\$${1} is not set properly for \$${name} - see ${rcvar_manpage}."
