Well, God knows I'm no expert, but I'm wondering if the script
got installed in /usr/pkg/etc/rc.d/ instead?

When I first started using pkgsrc I tried to keep the FBSD ports
system installed at the same time.  I got hopelessly lost in the
details of where the rc and config files should be installed.

I'm still a bit uncertain about these details, actually, even
though I managed to get everything working just by trial-and-

I remember (dimly) that doing a pkgsrc/bootstrap asks you where
you want certain things installed, like the rc.d directory, just
as one example.

Are there gurus out there who can give us the real facts?
