in both cases the example script got installed in /usr/pkg/share/examples.
So it looks like it's a DF-specific problem ...
The package's makefile itself should probably not set RCD_SCRIPT_SRC
to ${WRKSRC}/distributions/netbsd/apcupsd for non-netbsd systems,
but it looks like the configure script would need some adjystements as
The problem: the rc.d script doesn't seem to get installed.

The following files should be created for apcupsd-3.8.6nb5:
        /etc/rc.d/apcupsd (m=0755)

I've got the full build log if it's needed, and can provide any other info!

Anyone willing to take a quick look at this one? I don't have a clue :-)
