Yes, I've just sent it. Sorry.

No, but if docs/pkgsrc.txt is right I should not set it:

The automatic copying of config files can be toggled by setting the environment
variable PKG_RCD_SCRIPTS prior to package installation. Note that the scripts
will be always copied inside the examples hierarchy, ${PREFIX}/share/examples/
rc.d/, no matter what the value of this variable is.

My problem is that ${PREFIX}/share/examples/rc.d/ remains empty.
