Now I understand what the problem is: the webcamd is NOT supposed to
start at boot time (as the man page says: "... To start webcamd
automatically at system startup, place the following line in
rc.conf(5)...", please correct this), but should start as a devd(8)
hook; I will debug devd(8) to see why it does not come up;
