Exactly, you can do all kinds of things to make sure it isn't enabled, (I
usually add exit 0 to the top of the init script) but not having the
software isntalled that you don't use is one of the biggest advantages to a
binary based distro like Debian. Its the inability to do this at a
sufficiently granular level in *BSD that makes me want to punch through
walls sometimes. One of the biggest reasons I still evangelize binary
distro's and linux.
