In the rc(8) manpage, it states that .sh scripts are sourced directly.

     4.   Call each script in turn using run_rc_script() (from rc.subr(8)),
          which sets $1 to ``start'', and sources the script in a subshell.
          If the script has a .sh suffix then it is sourced directly into t=
          current shell.

Why is that? I've found that running directly with
start|stop doesn't work. I need to run apachectl.
