Thanks to Timo for the reply and for the init.d script. I guess I will grab the
1.8.3 iso, and use it for now as 1.9.1 iso does not have ucspi-tcp.

In order to control which slaves are allowed, where do you put your
entries which, under Bernstein's regime, go in a file that normally lives
at /etc/axfrdns/tcp ?

Although I see that the axfrdns-conf program exists in the djbdns apk,
I assume that I should not use it to set up axfrdns, as multilog is not
since there is no daemontools package.

Seems 'lbu ci usb' does not retain changes made in /etc/init.d, so I should add
a reference to the axfr start script in /etc/lbu/include , correct?

Any chance someone would package up daemontools for Alpine and just
allow this to be set up the way that DJB intends, including svc, svscan,
multilog, etc? (Is there a strong reason not to do this?)
