Hello.

I wrote a rc script that wraps binmiscctl(8) to load custom binmisc activators on boot time automatically.
I think this script may be useful to others, if it could be included in base system.

Usage:
Put following into 'rc.conf':

binmisc_enable="YES"
binmisc_names="<name> [<name>] [...]"
binmisc_<name>_magic=<magic-bytes>
binmisc_<name>_size="<number>"
binmisc_<name>_interpreter="<path>"
[binmisc_<name>_mask=<mask>]
[binmisc_<name>_offset="<number>"]


Example:

binmisc_enable="YES"
binmisc_names="mono"
binmisc_mono_magic='\x4d\x5a\x90\x00\x03\x00\x00\x00\x04\x00\x00\x00\xff\xff\x00\x00\xb8\x00\x00\x00'
binmisc_mono_size="20"
binmisc_mono_interpreter="/usr/local/bin/mono"
