I think the script should be moved.

This remembers me that I had problems because some of the InitNG scripts
use some programs that aren't available until /usr is mounted, but they
should be on POSIX compliant systems.

Some of those programs are awk, sort, and uniq.

As many distros have this problem, we're working on some workarounds,
until they are fixed...

The problem is that in some cases the workaround is waiting for /usr to
be mounted, and InitNG is targeted for speed, so that's not good.
