loader.conf presumes 4th support.  Some folks don't use 4th support
such as picoBSD and the boot floppies.  *.4th and boot/defaults are
all fair game.  Anways, I actually wouldn't mind if we installed
loader.rc so long as it was only done if !NOFORTH and all the other
4th and .con files were treated that way as well.  The idea is that
loader.rc is the very basic stuff that people can override.  Maybe
create a freebsd.rc that the default loader.rc just includes and
loads and change the freebsd.rc on the fly.  The NOFORTH method would
be ok I guess.
