No need to force it to have a .sh extension in /usr/local/etc/rc.d/
nowadays.  In fact, rather the contrary as a .sh extension causes the
script to be run in the context of the rc process rather than in a 
sub-shell.

In FreeBSD 6.2+ /usr/local/etc/rc.d/ is totally integrated with /etc/rc.d
and treated exactly the same.  The system re-runs rcorder over both of
those directories once it has got to the stage of mounting all the critical
filesystems.  So you can have 3rd party software and schedule it to be
started up earlier than some components of the base system if necessary.

        Cheers,

        Matthew
