Would a port of a Linux init do ? :-) You know, it's
all separate packages on Linux and there is no reason
why they can't be ported and used separately. Here is
the package name from RedHat:
$ rpm -qf /sbin/init
I don't know if there is a ready port but it should
be not THAT difficult to do.

Well, it's been a long story now. Every time someone comes
with the idea of adding init to BSD, other people feel very
strongly that they hate init and that it must not be in BSD.
