Perhaps. I copied the example in etc/rc.d/cleanvar (except without the
lack of newlines). Sam suggested the even simpler ">target" which would
also work. I'm assuming you have a /bin since the line after the cp is
chmod so I'm not really worried. echo -n does have the advantage of
being slightly clearer. I'm not sure if this is worth changing or not.
Any statement of the form "X is the one, true Y" is FALSE.
