There is an error in the rc.d script, the port dns/noip doesn't
install bin/noip, instead it installs bin/noip2.  But the script is
setting "command=${PREFIX}/bin/noip", when it should be using

Just change "command" variable in dns/noip/files/ and/or
PREFIX/etc/rc.d/noip to "command="%%PREFIX%%/bin/${name}2".
