I have saved this in /usr/local/etc/rc.d/ If I run this after the machine reboots, all is well. If I simply let it run in the reboot sequence, it doesn't do it's job! The sleep command is to give the server a chance to finish all its other bootup sequences, since that appears to be the factor messing things up. But it doesn't work!! What can I do to tweak this to do what I need it to do?

Well, it's going to involve a bit more than that to get an rc script up 
and running I'm afraid.. the script needs a start, stop, status 
functions, as well as a few others. Some examples are in the /etc/rc.d 
and /usr/local/etc/rc.d directories, as you've discovered.

Given your output above, maybe you want to add the LD_LIBRARY_PATH lines 
to the zopectl file?
