The daemon command is supplied by the init scripts at boottime. LFS doesn't 
provide this particular function, but should provide an equivalent. (I think 
it's called startproc, check the other bootscripts and it should shed some 
light) Also, IIRC, the BLFS book has a startup script for xinetd in xinetd's 
relevent section, and it works beautifully.
