Yep, it's broken.  There's other problems as well, but the main culprit 
is a lack of "load_rc_config $name".  Here's the one I use locally:


Drop that into ports/dns/nsd/files/nsd.in and reinstall the port.  You 
can also pipe it through `sed 's#%%PREFIX%%#/usr/local#g'` directly into 
/usr/local/etc/rc.d/nsd, but pkg will complain about a mismatch when you 
uninstall the port.
