I run avahi-daemon and avahi-dnsconfd from the same bootscript. I
don't run avahi-autoipd as the same functionality is in NetworkManager
for setting an IP address when DHCP can't be reached. But you could
probably stuff them all together so long as you get the order that
avahi-daemon has to be started first and stopped last.

Since all the daemons use libdaemon, much of the functionality for
starting, stopping and reloading the daemons comes as arguments and we
don't need to rely on the LFS functions. I've attached what I've got
for avahi-daemon and avahi-dnsconfd. It seems to work fine except that
dnsconfd sometimes hangs on stop. I think this is a bug in my wireless
driver, though.
