well, I dont think putting every script from blfs into /etc/rc.d/init.d/
is that great of an idea, but putting additional make install targets into
the bootscripts sounds great.

One thing I wanted to do, me and DJ [well, DJ's been maintaining it a
while, wonder if I recognize it] built that netfs script.  Since all it
does is mount -O _netdev, and umount -O _netdev [and a replacement for
sendsignals],  I was going to add that to the default bootscripts.

I was a bit curious why the random script in BLFS never went into LFS... 
[Perhaps it's the write to /var/lib]
