Don't do that.
We find ourselves at something of an impasse: We've already shot
ourselves in the foot with /usr/local/etc/rc.d. It should be in
/etc/rc.local.d (what if there's something that we want up prior to
our filesystems being mounted? Not likely, but it _could_ happen...).
But, as with all of us, that's an opinion based upon a strategy that
What of those of us who have done away with /usr/pkg in favour of
/usr/local (someone, please give me a sanity check and tell me that I'm
not the only one who did this!)? Maybe we'd like the option
(configuration, please, not a symlink) to put pkg/rc.d stuff directly into
$LOCAL_RC_DIR, and we'd still like to keep all the local/pkg stuff
separate from the system stuff.
