Good to know -- and time to sub to a new mailing list :-)

I certainly wasn't expecting all the existing ports to be converted!  I 
expected that the existing 'scripts ending in .sh' mechanism would 
continue, either putting them in a different directory or putting some 
logic into /etc/rc to avoid them.  I hadn't considered the not mounted 
problem :-(

Anyway, thanks for the info.  For now I'll keep with putting my own 
scripts into /etc/rc.d and keeping copies elsewhere for easy rebuilding.
