Well, unfortunately it's a little more complicated than that. The rc.d
system has some default assumptions about the specialness of scripts that
end in .sh, and while I don't necessarily agree with that, I didn't want to
redo it all.

I'm sorry if I wasn't clear before, the only thing port authors need to do
for properly functioning rc.d-style scripts is to install them as foo
instead of I have attached an untested patch for apache13 that
should do the trick, or at least show you what I have in mind.

At some point down the road, when we've dropped support for releases prior
to 6.1, this will simply be the way that all such scripts are installed, but
between now and then, there will be some transition pain involved.

*nod* I fully acknowledge that there will be problems, and I am willing to
revisit this approach down the road if it looks like it's causing more pain
than it's worth. At this point though, I think we just have to let it play out.
