When starting PostgreSQL by rc.d there is no clean way (such as using conf.d) to add additional options such as using a different port number in a way that will survive an update. Modifying the rc.d file would result in the changes being destroyed on update.

Additional info:
* postgresql-9.0.4-4

Steps to reproduce:
Start PostgreSQL on port 6543 using command ``/etc/rc.d/postgresql start``. Stop the server and upgrade PostgreSQL. Without modifying any files, run ``/etc/rc.d/postgresql start``.

Modify the PG_CTL= line to include the variable PGOPTS which can be set in the conf.d file.
This task depends upon
