If "rcadmin" was to be committed, part of its purpose would be to
search the rc.d directories for "foo", such that "rcadmin enable foo"
would work if foo is in /etc/rc.d or /usr/pkg/etc/rc.d or...(it doesn't
do that yet.)

The name of the game is to make the interface to using the scripts
something else so that you don't need to know the name of the script
or its location, just the the name of the service.
