I usually edit the offending scripts in /usr/local/etc/rc.d:
# cd /usr/local/etc/rc.d
# vi *
and make them all use a uniform notification:
echo -n " foo"
This does require a bit of shell scripting foo, but it shouldn't be
that hard. If it proves more difficult than you expected, feel free
to post the script here or personally to me and ask for help.
