I am looking for an LTO tape library. Do you have one to spare?

When the system first boots, install the pkg(8) tools (if not already
installed) and packages listed in the $firstboot_pkgs_list rc.conf
variable.  If the installed packages added new rc.d scripts, request
a reboot.

Obviously, this port is not useful after a system is already running; it is
intended to be included as part of the installation or disk image building
process.

Nominate myself for the useful-use-of-cat award.

pkg detects if its stdout is a terminal and prints many 'done%' lines,
which are useful for interactive use on modern terminals, but not so
useful on a serial console; piping through cat silences these.

pkg uses "is stdin a terminal?" to decide if it's running interactively
and thereby whether it should display a progress bar during downloads.
While rc.d scripts have a terminal attached, for the common case of
unattended installation of servers, this script is not being used
interactively; so redirect stdin from /dev/null to silence the progress
bars and reduce console spew.

The -q option could be used to accomplish this, but that would also
eliminate other more useful information, such as the names and versions
of packages being installed.

Fix dumb typo: Need to check if the number of rc.d scripts has changed
between pre-package-installation and post-package-installation, not
between pre- and pre-.

If firstboot_pkgs installs a package which contains an rc.d script,
request a reboot so that any newly-installed daemons will be launched.

Add firstboot-pkgs:

When the system first boots, install the pkg(8) tools (if not already
installed) and packages listed in the $firstboot_pkgs_list rc.conf
variable.

Obviously, this port is not useful after a system is already running; it is
intended to be included as part of the installation or disk image building
process.
