initscripts not running on bootup

Hi there,

I have a lfs system that has worked OK for some time, but now when I boot up 
after the normal kernel messages init starts in runlevel 3 (the default in 
inittab) and then immediately goes to a login prompt.  It never runs the 
initscripts.  I am able to login and manually run through the scripts in 
rcsysint.d, then run /etc/rc.d/init.d/rc 3 and everything seems to work OK, 
with the exception of sshd, which will run in the foreground but not as a 
daemon.  Following is my inittab file.  I would appreciate anyones thoughts on 
this.  Thanks in advance.
