Scot's answer was correct here in terms of timing. If you're looking
for a big round number, 6.1-RELEASE is good enough.

Not broken, they'll just work the same way they worked on 5.x. The
rcorder will look like this:

	<all local (ports) rc.d scripts run here>
more stuff

Ports were already using rc.d before I added the support to run them
in the overall order, but we were a little bit constrained on what we
could do with them since they all ran at the same exact place in the
boot process, and couldn't affect anything earlier than that.
