Change system configuration files with port install

Hi to all, I'm working to build a simple port which, after copying a couple of scripts under ${PREFIX}, leaves to the user the task to set a few variables in /boot/loader.conf and /etc/rc.conf.

I was wondering if there is a method and (first and foremost) if it's a sane idea, to make the port apply changes to these system configuration files.

At this time, I output with pkg-message the instructions to change these files.
