Good call.  I'm still trying to figure out what file systems flagged not 
flagged "noauto" would not be mounted before named(8) starts.  Maybe 
nullfs_, mfs, union etc.

Is the idea here that some systems use the local named(8) to do local DNS 
resolution before starting services like NFS?

Also, is there a reason we don't have a rc.d/localpkg ?
