Is that the right way? I'm a little worried that one package's init file
(procps) is calling anothers program (freebsd-utils). The whole point of
procps' init file is to start its sysctl. I already conditionally remove
sysctl and its man page so in a way it makes sense to remove the init
file if sysctl goes away and then let the other package deal with init
files for *its* sysctl.
