Bacula itself works just fine.  That's not the issue I am attempting to
address.  The scripts I've written are an attempt to tie in to rc(8) and

I understand that the script is generic and
platform-agnostic, but I wanted a system that takes advantage of the
flexibility of functions like rc.conf(5) for instances where my build machine
is not where I choose to run bacula-sd and bacula-dir.

The script will attempt to start all daemons that are
present; whether they are needed on the machine or not.  My scripts give the
flexibility to set whether or not a daemon runs with a flag in rc.conf(5).
