Or do you really need them loaded at boot? Basically the pkgsrc way seems to be "don't do that"; this is the debate about an expectation that packages should stay within PREFIX being more important than out-of-the-box working. There is the notion of install and de-install scripts that could do this sort of thing. If we are going to generally have beyond-PREFIX installation as an ok concept, then we should enable PKG_RCD_SCRIPTS by default....
