  	That's all fine and good, but where in rc.sysinit?  I tried
  putting it just before the root filesystems are mounted read/write, and
  that didn't seem to work.

procfs must be mounted, and /etc must be rw. i have it as:

# Remount the root filesystem read-write.
action "Remounting root filesystem in read-write mode" mount -n -o remount,rw /

## LVM
#scan for VGs and create /dev entries.
if [ -x /sbin/vgscan -a -f /proc/lvm ]; then
       action "LVM: Scanning for Volume Groups" /sbin/vgscan
#activate all VGs
if [ -x /sbin/vgchange -a -f /proc/lvm ]; then
       action "LVM: Activating Volume Groups" /sbin/vgchange -ay
## End LVM
