>Description:
	When processing RCD_SCRIPTS, the files are copied to
	${WRKDIR}.  If, however, the script name matches ${PKGBASE} -- quite
	normal in many cases -- and the source tarball doesn't have a
	version name attached to its top-level directory (or indeed
	doesn't have a top-level direcotry at all, per pkgsrc.txt),
	this copy won't do the right thing, and the rc.d file won't get
	installed.
>How-To-Repeat:
	See above.
>Fix:
	The proper fix, I suspect, is for there to be another . subdirectory
	of ${WRKDIR} to hold the rc.d files.  (N.B. I suspect this
	can happen with other files staged to ${WRKDIR}.)  What I've
	done temporarily is have a post-extract rule to rename to
	extract directory to ${DISTNAME}.

 The following worked for me for the package you sent me. (Be sure to add 
 entry to PLIST too.) Just added a unique suffix to filename for the copy 
 in the work directory.

 I'd prefer if we don't obscure the file name for a single package that
 failed so far.

 I have several work-arounds, but the problem is not improbable and it
 cost me ~4 hours work trying to figure out what was wrong.  In other
 words, I don't need a change to be able to keep working on this
 particular package.  However, the fix is easy, and there's no strong
 reason that anyone needs to see the original filename in the work
 directory.  The work directory is just that, the work directory; it
 isn't normally looked at by pkgsrc users. (Actually, I find the
 existence of non-dot files in that directory to be problematic, since I
 like to do 'cd work/*' when debugging things. Thus, I'd personally
 prefer a new . subdirectory, but Jeremy's fix is easier and solves the
 problem.)

 I just ran into this issue while building a package for radmind-git,=20
 applied Jeremy's patch, and was able to complete the package build.

 Given that most repository checkouts create a top directory named after=20
 the project without a version number, I contest J=F6rg's point that this=20
 is a singularity. I think the very unintrusive patch provided should be=20
 committed.

 Since there was some objection to that (which is why this PR is still
 sitting around now), how about ${WKRDIR}/rc.d/${_script_}?

 That is fine with me, assuming the directory is created.
