Re: FreeBSD - rc.conf man page splitting.

That man page is getting pretty big.  However, it's not always obvious
which section a particular setting should be in.  Right now, you can always
just search through the entire thing.  But searching would be harder if it
were split up.  So I vote to keep it together.
