I'm afraid you were relying on evil side-effects of the variable being
named *_program.  Those side-effect have been eliminated since rc.subr
rev. 1.42.  Now "status" doesn't appear among rc.d/pf valid arguments:

	vpc7# sh /etc/rc.d/pf
	Usage: /etc/rc.d/pf [fast|force|one](start|stop|restart|rcvar|check|reload|resync)

I might be wrong, but it seems to me that your change to rc.d/pf
should be backed out.

The point is that the default "status" method is for rc.d scripts
that handle startup and shutdown of conventional daemons, and not
for custom tasks like the pf case.
