(Replying here since trac seems to be broken: it won't let me add
comments to tickets after logging in.  No difference if I create a new
user.  No difference after verifying my email address.  No difference
after clearing cookies.  Somebody more familiar with why trac is giving
that "Warning: <acct_mgr.web_ui.MessageWrapper object at 0x[address]>"
error should probably look into it...)

I think the LFS bootscripts are fine.  We only start sysklogd in
runlevels 3, 4, and 5, so no runlevel 2.  It's after mountfs.  (But
before network, which might cause grief for NFS-mounted /usr -- then
again, that may not work for other reasons as well, I don't know.)

The sysklogd script itself does not use an absolute path to either
syslogd or klogd, so the script should be fine with or without a binary
