Thanks for taking a look at this. FYI, all of the rc.d scripts that are
actually in the ports tree have already been fixed. The outliers at this
point are scripts that are included in the distfiles. Some of those even
have patches in the tree already, and they were updated in the same sweep.

While we certainly try to enforce <filename> == PROVIDE == $name for
scripts that are in the tree, it can't be guaranteed that this is true
for scripts that are not, so if name=foo, rcvar should be foo_enable.
