PROVIDE is what the the script provides (i.e. the name of the script
for ordering purposes), REQUIRE is the what needs to be run before the
current script and AFTER is what can't be run until the current script

Don't edit the files though, or you'll have to maintain them
indefinitely. Do it with an extra file as I suggested.

Afterwards run 

rcorder /etc/rc.d/* /usr/local/etc/rc.d/*

and check for any errors

The ordering information is placed in comments at the top of the
script for rcorder to parse. If you uncomment them they become syntax
errors within the script.
