How is sshd supposed to know that blacklistd is enabled but not functioning
properly?

I suppose I could make the bl_init() code in the blacklist library stat() the
pidfile for the blacklistd daemon, and if not found, not log the message... 
But that's pretty fragile and would break if someone moves the pidfile to a
different location...

The other, much more intrusive, thing would be to add another flag to sshd (and
the other daemons) to specify that blacklist signaling should be used (and only
complain in that configuration, if the connection to the daemon fails).
