+SYNOPSIS:       Install daemontools-0.76 and ucspi-tcp-0.88
+
+DESCRIPTION:    Since the BLFS Book has dropped support for daemontools and
+                ucspi-tcp, I'm maintaining the install instructions at my
+                website.
+
+PREREQUISITES:  A working Unix system with the usual development tools.
+
+
+HINT:
+
+DJ Bernstein's daemontools suite offers a very convenient way of starting
+and controlling daemons. The package includes other highly useful tools like
+multilog, which does automatic log rotation, or setlock, which can be used
+in shell scripts to ensure that only a single instance of a program is running.
+
+The ucspi-tcp suite contains tcpserver, a secure replacement for inetd,
+as well as several other useful net-tools.
+
+The BLFS book has dropped support for daemontools and ucspi-tcp, so I
+maintain an updated version of the last install instructions at:
+
+http://www.bytereef.org/daemontools-install.html
+http://www.bytereef.org/ucspi-tcp-install.html
+
+Note that my instructions *do* involve creating a /service directory.
+

+ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS:
+  * All the people who contributed to the original BLFS entry

+CHANGELOG:
+[2005-11-05]
+  * Initial hint.
