Yup, and no amount of my re-reading the UPDATING was going to fix that 
logic :(

A slightly related issue hanging out there is the symlink vs the 
local/etc/rc.d's.  It's not mentioned in the UPDATING and I didn't find 
the Tools/mergebase.sh so I couldn't tell if something in there is 
intended to patch rc.subr either with my nasty patch or some more artful 
way of avoiding the problem with undesirable multiple local rc.d runs.
