:To be precise, this was needed for ports, because they couldn't produce

    There is currently nothing else in the system which runs /usr/pkg/etc/rc.d
    or /usr/local/etc/rc.d scripts.

    If you want to write (and TEST!) a replacement, that's fine. but we can't
    just remove the script without something to replace its functionality.
