As an aside, you may want to use /etc/rc.conf.local instead.
on a related note:
One problem is that it appears that /usr/local/etc/rc.d is NOT a
full-citizen in the rcNG system. You must have a .sh on the end, which
is not true of things in /etc/rc.d . I do not know if this means that
/usr/local/etc/rc.d scripts run inside the main process as a .sh script
does from /etc/rc.d or if it runs as a sub-process. In /etc/rc.d, ones
without .sh run as sub-processes of the main startup script, while ones
ending with .sh run in the main process...
