Perhaps you should look at the startup scripts for your local packages. :)
They usually live in /usr/local/etc/rc.d. The rc script attempts to run all
executable files in that directory whose names end with .sh (and it does so
right after it prints the "Local package initialization" message). It
should take too much trial and error (or observation if you know what
supposed to be running once you've started up) to figure out what the
culprit is. Then you can delete/disable the offending script/package or
upgrade it to the latest version. If the latest version still has problems
you should alert the port maintainer.
