Bug#1313: sysvinit-2.57b

We have some reasons to remove this file, as start-stop-daemon provides a
better replacement for the functions in it. For now, I think this is only
used with the "." (source) command, and it will work fine when mode 644.

Don't try to remove the old package first. Make sure you are running an
up-to-date version of dpkg - at least 0.93.70, and then just install the new
package with "dpkg -i <file>" .

I think "last" is in its own package, probably under the "text" subdirectory.
The base system includes "more".
