[Mailman-Users] Starting qrunner for FreeBSD

There is not BSD specific documentation in there. I was thinking about
submitting a patch for anyone who wants it...

Basically, (I use OpenBSD), you need to set this stuff in /etc/rc.local
and /etc/rc.shutdown instead of /etc/rc.d/init.d. BSDs are BSDish. Linux
is SysVish. The layout of some of the file system (including config files)
is a bit different. Linux, being the most popular, is the one that
typically gets documented and BSDers just have to get to it themselves.
