That how-to is pretty-old, there is a local rc.d script now. 

You just need turn it on  in /etc/rc.conf


and optionally set svscan_servicedir if you don't want to use /var/service. 

Some of the how-tos for DJBDNS  use some really odd paths. It doesn't really 
matter where the service directory goes, since it should only contain links, 
but some people have the real dnscache directory under /etc which is a bad 
place to put it under FreeBSD.
