Yes, using FILESYSTEMS and netif in REQUIRE / BEFORE works nicely,
thanks a lot. Updated script attached.

The cxmload script even works on my old installation (FreeBSD
6.2-stable and MythTV 0.20 something), but it made me notice something
else: mythbackend isn't starting automatically. Before it was caused by
the missing cxm module, now it is because of mysql.

/usr/local/etc/rc.d/mysql-server have these lines:
# PROVIDE: mysql
# KEYWORD: shutdown

and /usr/local/etc/rc.d/mythbackend have these lines:
# PROVIDE: mythbackend
# KEYWORD: FreeBSD shutdown

If the mysql-server script is correct, perhaps we should change the
mythbackend script?

If I change the mythbackend script like so:
# PROVIDE: mythbackend
# REQUIRE: mysql
# KEYWORD: FreeBSD shutdown

mythbackend starts after mysql.
Is this the correct way to do it?
