I didn't say it was simple, or even that it sounds simple. You asked for a
solution, so I gave you a solution. :) I should perhaps have added that this
suggestion was in lieu of the rather obvious one that you had already
described in your post, moving the startup script to /etc/rc.d by hand. I
can certainly see how neither one of those may be the most attractive
solutions possible, but they _are_ solutions.

For the very few ports that actually need it, USE_RCORDER is still there. I
don't know why the port author decided not to use it, hopefully he can
respond on that point. That variable is deprecated, but where it is still
needed, it can still be used. I would suggestion something like:

.if ${OSVERSION} < 600101
