thanks for this. Using the first-posted version of the patch (the one
from greek0.net is unreachable right now, I guess), I tried the
apt-get source sysvinit
apt-get build-dep sysvinit
cp 50_bootlogd_exitcode.dpatch debian/patches
debuild -uc -us
patches seem to apply properly, but the package won't build, I get this error:

this is on a recently-upgraded sid. Apparently there's no gcc symlink
on my box! lots of gcc's installed, e.g. gcc-2.95, gcc-3.0, gcc-3.2,
gcc-3.3, gcc-4.0, but not /usr/bin/gcc. DO I need to sett his
somehow? with update-alternatives perhaps?
