I didn't really want the directory logic within the services.  For now, I
am going to pass the SOURCE environmental variable to the services, and
take out all '. ifconfig.$1' lines, to be replaced by '. $SERVICE'

DJ, if you get this message, can you do this with BLFS, when LFS testing
upgrades to the latest beta bootscripts?
