"epilogue" script?

Dear Experts,

How does one create "epoligue" script in FreeBSD. By "epoligue" script
script I mean here the script that is executed after everything described
in /etc/rc.conf is done (services started, interfaces initialized etc.). I
tried to follow RTFM advise, but it looks like I'm too stupid to be able
to find leads. I tried to put what I need into /etc/rc.conf.local, and
what I put there is executed, but not after everything in /etc/rc.conf is

I'm left clueless. As Linux refugee I have a feeling that this is doable
without a hack, like making init script, and having "sleep ..." in it
before payload. In Linux this is done using /etc/rc.d/rc.local which is
executed _after_ everything else is done.

Just pointers where to read will be great.

Thanks a lot for all your replies.
