WIP: /etc/rc.d/xdm RCORDER problems

I have now a working /etc/rc.d/xdm script for booting  
But I have reached a problem.

The xdm script requires LOGIN syscons and moused.
But xdm is take very early by rcorder and gets running before init launch  
the gettys.
For a safe solution, I think that /etc/rc.d/xdm must tagged 'nostart' and  
launch from /etc/ttys.
No. In this case must become a real wrapper.

But I recall that gnome users do this from /usr/X11R6/etc/rc.d/gdm.sh  
without too much problems

So, I think that must be a real /etc/rc.d/ problem

After a first look, IMHO, seems that a lot of BEFORE tags are missing.  At  
last several BEFORE: LOGIN.

rcorder -k FreeBSD -s nostart /etc/rc.d/*

This is FreeBSD-5BETA5

May I send-pr this?
