First off, thanks for the time to send a bug report.

Second off, this is not a bug in dpkg.

Thirdly, it's not a bug at all.  Why not?

  * the program should be in /sbin, since /usr might not be mounted
    until later in the boot process

  * init scripts should not hard-code paths to init programs, but
    should rely on PATH being properly set.

I assure you, on a full hamm system, all is peachy with
start-stop-daemon being where it is.  Even if you're NFS'ing /usr.

If you agree, please close this bug by emailing to
