man rc.local on a freebsd 7 box says
The rc utility is the command script which controls the automatic boot
process after being called by init(8). The rc.local script
mands which are pertinent only to a specific site. Typically, the
/usr/local/etc/rc.d/ mechanism is used instead of rc.local these
if you want to use rc.local, it is still supported. In this case, it
should source /etc/rc.conf and contain additional custom startup
your system. The best way to handle rc.local, however, is to
out into rc.d/ style scripts and place them under /usr/local/etc/rc.d/.
The rc.conf file contains the global system configuration information
referenced by the startup scripts, while rc.conf.local contains the
system configuration. See rc.conf(5) for more information.
The rc.d/ directories contain scripts which will be automatically exe-
cuted at boot time and shutdown time.
So, rc.local, though not current is still supported.
