webcamd 0.1.18 compiles and installs fine here:
tingo at kg-v2$ uname -a
FreeBSD 8.1-STABLE FreeBSD 8.1-STABLE #3: Thu Sep 16 22:18:48 CEST 2010     root at  amd64

Well, it seems the startup script could be improved even more:
- it doesn't give you any options:
root at kg-v2# grep webcamd /etc/rc.conf
# webcamd
root at kg-v2# /usr/local/etc/rc.d/webcamd
root at kg-v2# 
- it doesn't support rcvar (or any other standard options?):
root at kg-v2# /usr/local/etc/rc.d/webcamd rcvar
root at kg-v2# 
root at kg-v2# /usr/local/etc/rc.d/webcamd start
root at kg-v2# 

Unless I'm doing it wrong?
