Thank you for your comments.

Thing is named dies if tap0 is not up when it starts and as this is a 
public named server it needs to be running after boot.

Rewriting the provided rc scripts, they are part of the port and 
requires work when updated.

So, the conlusion is, fiddle with the ule/rc.d/ and prepare to fix them 
after every update? No other way?
