A more semantically pure example (and the one that's preferred if your
script starts an external application - a web server or something like
that) is to put the script in /usr/local/etc/rc.d. In any case, the
syntax and everything else is the same.
This is a bit muddled.
/etc/rc.d is for system RCNG scripts.
/usr/local/etc/rc.d is for local RCNG scripts and legacy scripts
that simply respond to stop/start in $1. Legacy scripts end in .sh and
are called from /etc/rc.d/localpkg in dictionary order.
Since the OP appears to have such a script it should be given a ".sh"
extension and placed in /usr/local/etc/rc.d, not in /etc/rc.d.
