My bad

I had installed the new boot stuff from lfs-bootscripts/contrib and these led 
to aversion of syslogd and klogd being in /sbin. (Can't remember if I 
manually copied them there for not).  The sysklogd packages puts the binaries 
in /usr/sbin

So I had two incompatible copies on the same system!
