/usr/local/etc/rc.d/ is a replacement for rc.local, so it would be odd
if /usr/local/etc/rc.d/rc.local had any special significance. 

I don't even have an rc.local file, so it doesn't play a part in the
normal boot process, and I assume it's only really deprecated for use
by packages, which should install a script instead.
