FWIW I think your fix is correct.
I gather this file is used a bit like transaction log, so must never be
created, empty, from an initscript merely because it is missing.
Instead, it should be created at install time from postinst as you have
done. During a package upgrade, I think that is okay too, because it
can be assumed that /var is already clean and mounted by then.
/var/lib seems to be the right place for it too (persistent state).
I haven't tried it yet though (or NFS, at all, on a kFreeBSD system).
