i have committed to -current newer version of the rfcomm_pppd_server script


Add rfcomm_pppd_server rc script to allow start rfcomm_pppd(8) in server
mode at boot time. Multiple profiles can be started at the same time.
The whole idea is very similar to the ppp rc script.


it provides support for multiple rfcomm_pppd profiles running on
multiple rfcomm channels. still not sure why you need to support this,
but it was relatively painless to add such support, so i did it. give
it a try and let me know if you have any problems and/or suggestions.
i will mfc it in a week or so.
