this is kind of a weird issue...
On an Ultra 1 running Solaris 9, I have bootstrapped pkgsrc and built a
few packages. Since wip/isc-dhcpd wanted an /etc/rc.subr around, I
installed pkgtools/rc.subr and copied the samba and dhcpd scripts to
Now, during a boot, _something_ looks into /etc/rc.d and sources the
scripts into either /sbin/sh or /usr/bin/sh:
syslog service starting.
/etc/rc.d/isc_dhcpd: syntax error at line 66: `_osname=$' unexpected
/etc/rc.d/nmbd: syntax error at line 66: `_osname=$' unexpected
/etc/rc.d/smbd: syntax error at line 66: `_osname=$' unexpected
volume management starting.
The system is ready.

-- and I can for the life of me not find out what that something is?!
Recursively grep(1)ing /etc for any combination of rc.d returns nothing
substantial. There is definitely nothing in '/etc/rc?.d'.
