In /etc/rc.d.local/ as explained in the [initial] proposal :) These are
supplementary to the .local versions.

The proposal, as explained, addresses the possible problems arising when
using postinstall(8) (if NetBSD is the only user of /etc/rc.d/, it can
add or suppress things here without problem).

It can give a standard way for pkgsrc stuff adding (at the moment, IMHO,
it is a bit fuzzy).

It allows domain wide configuration, with only site (this very node
specifics) being put in /etc/rc.conf.

The message is not as long to read as it may seem, since a blunder on my
part has included as a comment the previous diffs as well as, attached,
the new ones.

The explanations are something like 5k.

Please read the whole stuff ;)
