Subject: Start dhcpd on boot

I installed net/isc-dhcp3-server from ports, butI can't seem to
it to start when the machine boots. After boot I can do a
# /usr/local/etc/rc.d/ 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
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/ to
/usr/local/etc/rc.d/, 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"        # 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
root from

Other pertinent info:
# uname -a
FreeBSD 6.1-RELEASE-p3 FreeBSD 6.1-RELEASE-p3

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...a little out of date, I know, but that has no bearing on the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

Thanks in advance.
