save-entropy on 6.0 release bit sensitive to rc.conf

I enabled inetd in my usually sloppy fashion in 6.0 release
(which so far is making me smile in a way i haven't since
4.something, three cheers for the developers hip hip......)
inetd_enable="YES"# -- enabled inetd 10-11-2005 -- mwr
(note the missing space between " and #.
this does not break startup
However it definitely breaks /usr/libexec/save-entropy causing a
"-- not found message"
Further investigation showed that
inetd_enable="YES"#-- enabled inetd 10-11-2005 -- mwr
gives a "enabled not found" message
man rc.conf gives no guidance as to proper use of # comments in rc.conf
(cf man (5) newsyslog.conf)
but I guess folks should know? or am i being picky?
