Posted on ports@ (Subject: USE_RC_SUBR and local_startup scripts in the
base rcorder), waited a few days to be told if I'm a stupid or a
genius :), no replies, assumed I'm right, so start sending prs.

USE_RC_SUBR basically does 2 things:
- performs substitutions on ${USE_RC_SUBR}
- installs the files in ${USE_RC_SUBR} with .sh extension
So even if you have files/rc_script.in besides files/rc_script.sh.in
(so that the substitutions can be performed) it will be installed
with .sh extension.
