Well, that's usually the right way to handle such things, just go look at the
rc.d script, it ordinarily has references to various different variable namings.
 The script that the port offers, I think it came with the port's tarball, and
it doesn't offer anything like the usual informative comment, so your usually
good advice, it doesn't work in this one.

However, you *DID* say tomcat60 here, that's direct enough for me, thanks.

Do you happen to know how rcvar works?
