Allow me an addition:

You can find information about how to convert or construct
a rc.d script in The Porter's Handbook:

	6.26. Starting and Stopping Services (rc Scripts)

But as you already have a script that works, it would
probably be easier to just create an "interface" to that
script. There is a section in the article "Practical rc.d
scripting in BSD" which might be helpful (and the article
itself is worth reading):

Especially this section:

	7. Connecting a script to the rc.d framework

I'm quite sure this is the easiest way to integrate the
existing and working script with the requirements of rc.d.
