I wonder what is the reasoning behind fusefs-kmod port way of dealing
with kernel module(s).
I remember iwi ports putting their modules into /boot/modules and then
one only had to edit /boot/loader.conf[.local]
Now fusefs-kmod creates new directory /usr/local/modules where it puts
its module, then it optionally edit /etc/sysctl.conf to modify
kern.module_path and rc.conf to run /usr/local/etc/rc.d/fusefs script.
Is all of this really necessary and why please ??
