Sorry this wasn't clear enough: I moved all the scripts from
/usr/pkg/share/examples/rc.d to /etc/rc.d and then made the former a
symlink pointing to the latter just to ensure all future rc.d scripts
would end up there as well. After the whole mess happened I undid
this; the /etc/rc.d is now identical to /usr/src/etc/rc.d (i.e. for
the time being, pkgsrc-installed rc scripts are out of the way); still
I still have no idea *what* exactly could be messed up; from the
symptoms it seems that something in the rc process keeps starting the
whole process again and again - until I hit ctrl-c, at which point all
these processes continue in parallel. Where could this happen?
