The scripts at one time were installed with a .sh suffix, but this was
changed in FreeBSD 6.1, 7.x to no longer require a .sh suffix for the
startup scripts.

If your PREFIX/etc/rc.d scripts are not starting without the .sh
suffix, then your /etc/rc.d scripts are out of date.  Use mergemaster
to update them to the current versions.
