FreeBSD-3.3 have master.passwd with additional fields befor GECOS field.
This file have to be compiled to binary form /etc/pwd.db by pwd_db command,
Maybe someone would like to hack base-passwd package and add support
for FreeBSD? :)
More interesting is sysvinit package. FreeBSD have different init style
and haven't got /etc/inittab file. We could adaptade Linux /sbin/init
or use original FreeBSD /sbin/init. Of course SYSV-like init scripts
scheme is possible to use and are indepedent of /sbin/init binary.
run-parts and start-stop-daemon work pretty.
