The attached patch allows dpkg to build (doesn't try to build the doc

unfortunately the old way of cd into the directory and making
start-stop-daemon doesn't work anymore - but with the patch, run

cd utils
install -m755 start-stop-daemon /sbin
install -m644 start-stop-daemon.8 /usr/share/man/man8/

I'll do some testing on it - but I think this might be a better solution
than using loadproc()

Of course - I could be wrong about that ... :P

edit - seems I have this list named "LDS Devel" in my address book-
Since I assume this isn't a Mormon list - I'll promptly change that typo
