Re: reboot complains about /dev/initctl

Until such own initscripts package is made, is using sysvinit our goal? If not, then it's better to not include halt and reboot in sysvinit when it's build for hurd-i386. If it is, halt and reboot should be excluded from hurd, and sysvinit's halt and reboot should assume -f in hurd-i386 (until someone patches things). In any case, sysvinit packages provide things like update-rc.d and runlevel, which we need until our own initscripts is cooked.
