Maybe put those rcorder-style scripts in /etc/rc.d/.

You can make your packages install the rcorder-style rc.d scripts by 
setting PKG_RCD_SCRIPTS=YES in your pkgsrc mk.conf and in your shell 
environment for pkg_add(1).

Then it will copy them to RCD_SCRIPTS_DIR which defaults to /etc/rc.d/.

(How did your rc.d scripts get into your $local_startup directories?)

By the way, FreeBSD's startup scripts check the rc.d scripts for the a 
rcorder tag to then use rcorder to order them.
