Install packages when the system first boots

When the system first boots, install the pkg8 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.
