The /usr/X11R6 is now a symlink to /usr/local, so both of the two paths /usr/local/etc/ and /usr/X11R6/etc/rc.d are now point to the same directory. However in the /etc/defaults/rc.conf file the 'local_startup' variable is still set to:

local_startup="/usr/local/etc/rc.d /usr/X11R6/etc/rc.d"

This causes the local startup scripts be invoked twice on startup and shutdown of the system.


Change the 'local_startup' to


in the /etc/defaults/rc.conf file.
