I installed net/isc-dhcp3-server from ports, butI can't seem to persuade it to start when the machine boots. After boot I can do a
# /usr/local/etc/rc.d/isc-dhcpd.sh start
...and the daemon runs and works, but I would like for it to start
automatically on boot, with no manual intervention. Any thoughts on how to do this?

Google didn't find anything useful, nor did a search of the -questions archive. On a hunch, I renamed /usr/local/etc/rc.d/isc-dhcpd.sh to /usr/local/etc/rc.d/dhcpd.sh, but still no love, so I put it back.

In /etc/rc.conf I have
dhcpd_enable="YES"      # Run the DHCP daemon...
dhcpd_ifaces="rl1"      # ...on this interface...
dhcpd_flags="-q"        # ...in quiet mode.

# grep dhc /var/log/messages
shows only the usual rash of intrusion attempts from 0wn3d Windows machines, e.g. May 19 22:28:00 mail sshd[22367]: error: PAM: authentication error for root from 24-231-195-180.dhcp.bycy.mi.charter.com

Other pertinent info:
# uname -a

# pkg_info | grep isc-dhcp3-server
isc-dhcp3-server-3.0.3 The ISC Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol server
...a little out of date, I know, but that has no bearing on the issue at hand.

Thanks in advance.
