NetBSD base includes many /etc/rc.d/ files.
Some pkgsrc packages provide rc.d scripts with same filenames
and some with same rc.conf variable names.
Have NetBSD xorg fully installed with its provided /etc/rc.d/xdm.
Later decided to use xdm from pkgsrc but its startup script is not installed.
Have a policy for this. Maybe use different names, like prefixed
with "pkgsrc-" or use some other unique names.

I know that changing the command and required_files can be done for the
existing rc.d script or manually copying the new example/rc.d file
over it.
