whilst we could add rc_configured=NO to /etc/default/rc.conf, the
reason I left it in /etc/rc.conf was so that it was obvious to people
that it had to be changed.

i'm not fussed what really happens as long as:
	a) sysinst does NOT edit/modify /etc/default/rc.conf
	b) it's obvious in /etc/rc.conf what needs to happen for
	   people who don't use sysinst
