You probably need the following line added to /etc/rc.conf:

local_startup="/usr/local/etc/rc.d"

The defaults in /etc/defaults/rc.conf still try to run startup scripts
in /usr/local/etc/rc.d and /usr/X11R6/etc/rc.d, however these are
probably the same location via a /usr/X11R6 link.

One of the X ports attempts to add this, but I've seen cases where it
doesn't get added.
