1. Use `if' syntax.

if checkyesno foo ; then

1. Execute `true' if false

checkyesno foo && do_foo || true

# If we need result of do_foo
! checkyesno foo && true || do_foo
How-To-Repeat: # echo 'ip6addrctl_verbose="NO"' >> /etc/rc.conf
# /etc/rc.d/ip6addrctl start
# echo $?

# echo 'sysvipc_enable="NO"' >> /etc/rc.conf
# echo 'linux_enable="NO"' >> /etc/rc.conf
# echo 'svr4_enable="NO"' >> /etc/rc.conf
