This is true.
However, I'm wondering whether a more elegant and simple solution
might just be for Bruce to run the cross-installation which a PATH
environment variable that ensures that the version of
start-stop-daemon it finds is a link to `true'.
This doesn't help other scripts, of course.
If Bruce still thinks that modifying start-stop-daemon to take acount
of a CROSS_INSTALL variable (I believe that was what he suggested, I
don't have the mail here right now) is better then I shall do that,
but he can use my suggestion above as a work-around in the meantime.
