I tested it with devel/git and it looks like a bug to me. I've got a
patch which should fix it[1]. It's basically a copy/paste of the
install-rc-script target into the do-package target and removing the two
lines that actually install the script.

A better solution may be to have one target install the rc script and
one target add it to the plist. That way the add-to-plist target can be
effectively shared. Minimizing the chances that changes in one do not
reflect into the other.

Does anyone have any opinions on this? If not I'll open a PR for
