Yes, of course.  I thought that was obvious.

Agreed, that might be an appropriate clarification.

Best regards

It should be included because not everyone uses the standard /etc/rc.* hierachy. For example I have a completely custom rc which before I did an other hack to make this issue not an issue read:


export PATH

kldload fuse
swapon -a
fsck -p
mount -rw /
mount -a
sysctl vfs.usermount=1
ntfs-3g /dev/ad4s1 /mnt/c
/usr/local/etc/rc.d/hald onestart
hostname aryeh-desktop.istudentunion.com
ifconfig ale0
ifconfig lo0
route add
route add default
ntpdate pool.ntp.org
sendmail -bd -q1m
