In assuming "local rc scripts" means anything installed by ports ... i
am assuming you installed a fresh Xorg-7.2 and now at some point ended
up with the /usr/X11R6 -> /usr/local symlink.
If the above assumption holds true ... did you run the mergebase.sh
script as suggested in /usr/ports/UPDATING ?
Most significantly .. this script adds the following entry to
The default entry in /etc/defaults/rc.conf still
references /usr/X1R6/etc/rc.d as well ... since the latter is now a
symlink to the former, both rc.d-paths contain the same scripts.
If your rc.conf doesn't contain the aforementioned entry, that would
explain why local rc-scripts are started twice.
