[snip description about some /usr/local/etc/rc.d scripts not running at boot]

FWIW this is from my mail server running Postfix:

# grep sendmail /etc/rc.conf
sendmail_enable="YES"
sendmail_flags="-bd"
sendmail_outbound_enable="NO"
sendmail_submit_enable="NO"
sendmail_msp_queue_enable="NO"

I don't think this is the problem the OP had, though, since he didn't
mention that boot process hung. Just some services did not start.
