That sounds interesting.
I am reading both threads. I had not intended to revisit this so soon, but
there is never a good time. I'll review any solution that does not require
LFS to change. (What most people don't understand is that LFS DID make a
major change for BLFS between versions 1.08 and 1.09). The bottom line is
they don't have a problem, we (BLFS) do, and I can even argue that it is
not a problem. As I believe you put it best when you said, it's sloppy.
I have been very surprised that this has not become a FAQ on the support
mailing list. We really expected that anyone installing dhcpd would ask why
dhcpd was not shutting down properly, which would have made it a good
candidate for the LFS fAQ.
I am not adverse to changing the book, but Mark laid down some ground rules
for this section (no program specific scripts) and I will abide by those as
