I'm looking for some good resources on running daemontools on a NetBSD box. I've installed the binary package via pkg_add, but I can't seem to find an rc script for starting, e.g., svscan. I'm mostly a Linux and FreeBSD user, and this is the sort of thing I would expect to find after an install. Did I just look in the wrong place? Should I be building from source to find those sorts of extras? Is there a good guide somewhere that covers things like this? Thanks.

I once did this on OpenBSD and followed http://openbsd.totorux.info/openbsd-wiki.org/index.php/Installing_Daemontools

Maybe it can help under NetBSD, too?
