I don't know if I understand you correctly, but does this mean, that
the question whether a init.d script would start the daemon is
dependent on the status of this chkconfig thing?

This is a way bad idea.

This means, that during startup, not only the rcX.d links (or the
filerc equivalent) determines what gets started, but also another

This also means, that when I explicitly call "/etc/init.d/postgresql
start" to start the daemon, the result still depends on another config 

The result is a unnecessary "AND" style switch.

If this is how Irix handles this, then I am glad I don't have to use
