Thank you for pointing me to that. In fact it's started as
/etc/rcS.d/S40netenv, because it is needed before
- netenv (as it currently is, using /usr/bin/stat) cannot be used on a
system that has /usr on an nfs filesystem
- anybody who reasonably wants to use netenv, a program for laptops or
other portables, will have /usr mounted locally
- still I have to think about a way to prevent harm when somebody
accidently installs it on a machine using nfs for /usr.
As I don't use nfs at all, I don't know how to figure this out safely
during configure. Can you point me to the right place?
