Permission of files inherit a bit of the directory they're in (I
forget the details). Initscrips are rc NOT SysV. If you add a
package you have to write the initscript snippet.
Although FreeBSD has started to include a sort of "mini-SysV" setup,
in /usr/local/etc/rc.d. You can put a script in there and it will be
run with "start" as the argument when the system boots, and "stop"
with the argument when it shuts down. This is a little bit nicer
than /etc/rc.local for stuff you need to shut down gracefully.
I don't know if this has made it into OpenBSD or not.
