I am thinking that my message which answered this question crossed yours in
Work is currently being done, and I expect will pick up again now that
Christmas is over, on a way to make all such scripts which do nothing but
ldconfig certain directories obsolete. If you're interested, I commend you
to the freebsd-rc list archives.
It is also worth noting that at some point in the future, when all scripts
which start services have been converted to the new rc.d format, it will be
second nature for users to consider adding the appropriate _enable line in
/etc/rc.conf.local. There will be some time between now and then where we
will need to educate our user base on this change, but that is a cost we
have to bear in order to facilitate both the complete transition to rc.d,
and incorporating the local startup scripts into the overall rcorder.
