Probably you have not, other than that pkgsrc only has things fixed that
someone was motivated to fix.

If you want to figure out how to fix this and send a patch, it might
help people.  There's some potential trickiness surrounding not messing
up things on NetBSD, and I don't know how pkgsrc deals with rc.d files
when they already exist when "PKG_RCD_SCRIPTS=yes" is set.
