yes. but this amounts to running a `make' over the list of
dependencies at every boot (possibly changing nothing if the dependencies
iirc, some developers objected fairly fiercely to that idea (not using
make, but the idea of depending on the dependency-checker, crashes
halfway through the `atomic' dependency-file update, etc, etc.).
Would it be a useful first step to take the existing monolithic
/etc/rc, and break that up into sensible `modules'?
While leaving all the rc.conf machinery alone?
