start-stop-daemon blues. Perl is to big for my boot disk.

I would like to be able to use the standard Debian start-up scripts for my 
custom router bootdisk. (And it appears so would alot of other people)

Unfortunately start-stop-daemon requires perl.

All together perl and libs are about 500K (about 200K compressed)......a 
HUGH waste on a floppy.

Is there any compiled or shell compatible version of start-stop-daemon?
It looks fairly simple. If I wasn't completily ignorant of Perl and 'C' 
under Linux I'd do it myself......
