[arch-general] Sourcing /etc/rc.conf in configs and .install scripts

I noticed a few configs and .install scripts mention /etc/rc.conf
(mostly it's just '. /etc/rc.conf'), even though initscripts are not
supported anymore.

For example locale.sh from filesystem package has

elif [ -r /etc/rc.conf ]; then
  LANG=$(. /etc/rc.conf 2>/dev/null; echo "$LOCALE")

Should I open a bug report for this?
