/usr/local/etc/rc.d scripts not starting after update to -stable, also /etc/rc.d syntax error

Yesterday I updated to -stable.  I think that I did a decent job merging the /etc files and configuring
rc.conf but I am getting some errors.

First, the scripts in /usr/local/etc/rc.d are not starting.  I do have the following line in rc.conf:


The syntax error reported on bootup is:

/etc/rc.d/Makefile: 44: Syntax error: "(" unexpected.

Perhaps that error is what is causing the local startup scripts not to execute.

Thanks for any help you can give me.
