Yep, something changed around 4.x in sysinstall where rc.conf is not
created until near when it finishes. If you write to rc.conf during an
scripted sysinstall, then it will be over written. You can write your
stuff to /etc/rc.conf.local. It gets sourced in /etc/defaults/rc.conf.
$ grep rc.conf /etc/defaults/rc.conf
After boot time, we have a post boot script which merges our stuff from
rc.conf.local into rc.conf, just to keep it clean.
Just to be safe, we quote everything in install.cfg. As in
echo 'sshd_enable=YES' >> /etc/rc.conf.local
