You have answered your own question.  What exists in ${PREFIX}/etc/rc.d
are startup scripts, *not* shutdown or restart scripts.

You mean our init system should look like RedHat's?  The OS is named
Free_BSD_ because we use not only the source code from the BSD team at
UCB, but because we practice their OS philosophy as closely as is still
relevant to the industry.  We use BSD init, not SVR4, and I don't see
any reason for that to be altered.

BTW, I don't read -ports.
