every time i start and exit sysinstall, the following text 
is appended to /etc/rc.conf
--- start ---
# This file now contains just the overrides from /etc/defaults/rc.conf.
# Please make all changes to this file, not to /etc/defaults/rc.conf.

# Enable network daemons for user convenience.
# Created: Mon Nov  8 16:35:26 2004
--- end ----
(the time stamp obviously differs)

after running sysinstall many times, you will end up with a large
rc.conf file full of this text.
start and then exit sysinstall.
this text should not be appended to rc.conf, or appended only once.
