Hello, I see you are the maintainer of the smartmontools port for 
FreeBSD.  It's sort of a stupid issue, but I wanted to let you know 
that as packaged the script installed in 
/usr/local/etc/rc.d/ doesn't work on boot-up.  You need to add the path 
to the smartd executable in front of the command or the system cannot 
find it during boot time.  Perhaps it would be good to add a prefix 
variable to the script?

Just wanted to let you know,
    Aaron Jacobs
