At least bmake doesn't really care. It tries ${PREFIX}/etc/mk.conf and
/etc/mk.conf in that order. pkg_chk is not supposed to care either, but
I will talk with the author about this bug.

For rc scripts, they go to /etc/rc.d by default (RCD_SCRIPTS_DIR),
unless overridden. Putting them anywhere but /etc/rc.d makes IMO only
useless trouble though.
