There is another way, but it doesn't sound much better:
You could use /etc/rc.local to implement the exact order in
which you need to start the different services, without using
their automatic startup (*_enable="YES" in combination with
the /etc/rc.d/ and /usr/local/etc/rc.d/ scripts).
Again, note that /etc/rc.local is not the _last_ thing executed
at startup - other services might be started later. So if you
need such a service to run _before_ something else, start it
yourself from /etc/rc.local and prevent any further startup
tries (or ignore the "service already running" messages).
