Hello List,
I did a patch to allow rc.conf DAEMON_enable values to be decided at startup.

1) set apache_start="ask" in rc.conf
2) at boot, you'll be prompted with "RC_ASK - Enable apache? [yes|no] "
3) the daemon is started depending on the decision
4) the decision is stored until the next boot, so that rc.shutdown can
decide whether to call stop for a particular daemon or not

for more information and to download the patch
