If I recall correctly you can only start the services in /etc/rc.d/ if
you have them in /etc/rc.conf with '/etc/rc.d/<service-name> start'. (
But off-course there is a way to start them without adding them to
rc.conf : '/etc/rc.d/<service-name> forcestart' ). You must have mixed
up the two ( /etc/rc.d/ and /usr/local/etc/rc.d/ )
