contributions made by individuals who are not committers.]

The rc.d script looks good overall. I've attached a patch to make a 
couple of small changes. For future reference, _configuration is usually 
spelled _conf by convention, although there is nothing special about 
that variable, so no point in changing it now.

Since you allow the user to specify the configuration file location, and 
I am assuming that the configuration file is mandatory, I'm suggesting 
the changes in the patch (adding it to required_files, and using 
command_args instead of _flags). At minimum the argument to daemonize 
the service should always be in command_args, and is traditionally 
listed last. And first but not least, unless there is a reason to run it 
earlier we prefer local scripts to REQUIRE: LOGIN.

If someone decides to commit these changes, please don't forget the
