Newer freebsds have a named pidfile location problem. named writes

/var/run/ ; the rc scripts expect /var/run/named/pid.  So,
stopping named fails and makes boss-install die.  So, the quick fix for
now is to create the obvious symlink, IF the machine that is being
installed doesn't have a named_pidfile set in rc.conf .
