rcorder feature request

During boot rcorder only scans the /etc/rc.d directory.

Feature request: have rcorder scan both /etc/rc.d /etc/rc.local.d 

I my use case I have around 60 /etc/rc.local.d scripts. Keeping them 
separated ensures that when it comes time to do a clean install, say 
from an ISO, I am able to just tar the /etc/rc.local.d directory (save 
on another media, etc); rather than trying to determine which came with 
DragonFly and which didn't.

/etc/rc & /etc/rc.shutdown scripts would need to be modified and 
/etc/rc.local.d directory be created if absent during install/upgrade.

NB: /usr/local/etc/rc.d scripts are not subject to ordering by rcorder 
and may not be on a mounted file system at the time of rcorder execution.
