I think the proper way to debug this would be to include
"REQUIRE: mountcritremote" if the script uses commands in /usr in the first
place. rcorder(8) should then complain about a circular dependency.
I'm not sure about when to call the script in the boot order.
Also, may I suggest "staticarp" as a name for the script and maybe
/etc/arp.conf as a filename? There already is staticroute and route.conf,
hence the thought.
