There are no knobs in rc.conf for the applications you mentioned.
Rc.conf does not have internal check to verify you have correct
statements. So having apache_enable="YES" in rc.conf does nothing
and issues no error message telling you it is invalid.  All ports
are started from  /usr/local/etc/rc.d/

Subject: Manually starting RCng scripts disabled in rc.conf

Is it possible to manually run an rcNG-style script with
in /etc/rc.conf?

For instance, there are a few services that I don't want running all
time on my laptop (like Apache, Squid, DansGuardian) but that I need
running now and then for development / testing purposes.  As such, I
have apache_enable="NO" in my rc.conf to prevent Apache from
at boot time.  However, this also means that I cannot manually start
Apache when I need it running, unless I use apachectl or run the
binary directly.  And I can't use the RCng script to check the
or restart, or any of the other nice things that RCng gives me.  It
would be much simpler/nicer if I could use the rcNG script to do

Am I missing something simple, or is it just not possible to do what
want?  I'd like to use the rc.d scripts to control everything, but
if I
have to enable them all in rc.conf and then manually stop them after
each boot, I'll most likely end up writing my own non-RCng wrapper
scripts for each app.  :(
