Re: /etc/rc.d/rpcbind requires ntpdate

:The file /etc/rc.d/rpcbind has a reference to ntpdate which is obsolete 
:and no longer exists in the distribution. Removing the requirement fixes 
:the error but the correct solution is probably to change it to rdate or 
:   # PROVIDE: rpcbind
:- # REQUIRE: NETWORKING ntpdate syslogd named ppp
:+ # REQUIRE: NETWORKING syslogd named ppp
:   # KEYWORD: DragonFly FreeBSD NetBSD

    Well, I was going to track down the proper dependancy to put there
    but it looks like Joerg removed support for the ntpdate_enable variables.

    Joerg, what's up with that?  We still want to support ntpdate 
    functionality from an RCNG perspective, it would simply call rdate
    now instead of ntpdate.

    Shouldn't we add an 'rdate' RCNG script to replace the ntpdate script
    you removed ?
