The /etc/rc.local script was where local daemon startup was put. With most of the ports installed stuff, there is a foo.sh script that accepts `start' and `stop' arguments that one can put in the /usr/local/etc/rc.d directory. This tends to be the preferred way of doing things for pre RCng versions. The 5.X version of FreeBSD uses the new rc scripts (RCng) that live in /etc/rc.d and now there is the new /etc/rc.d/local scripts that fits nicely with the rest of the stuff under /etc/rc.d.
