  Description     : leightweight C library for daemons

   libdaemon is a leightweight C library which eases the writing of UNIX
   daemons. It consists of the following parts:
     * A wrapper around fork() which does the correct daemonization
       procedure of a process
     * A wrapper around syslog() for simpler and compatible log output to
       Syslog or STDERR
     * An API for writing PID files
     * An API for serializing UNIX signals into a pipe for usage with
       select() or poll()

   Routines like these are included in most of the daemon software
   available. It is not that simple to get it done right and code
   duplication cannot be a goal.

The new version of ifplugd depends on this library, that's why it is
