One should have some other script that you could run, which
would look thru all the rc files and just list which order
they will be run at startup (or at shutdown).  That way you
could find out the order for a given set of scripts without
having to actually startup or shutdown...

(I have no idea how netbsd does it, I'm just saying that I
would think some other script should be provided which
could list out the proper order without actually running
any of the scripts...)
