And it failed because of this :

# Replace and backup /etc/inittab (unless already in new format)
if [ -f "${ROOT}/${inittab}" ] && \
	[ -z "$(grep 'si::sysinit:/sbin/rc sysinit' "${ROOT}/${inittab}")" ]


I've had the line '#si::sysinit:/sbin/rc sysinit,' because some time in the 
past I upgraded to 1.8.6.2 (or something like that,) then downgrade to 
1.8.5.8 and instead of replacing inittab, I just commented out those lines.

I guess a workaround could be:

	$(grep '^si::sysinit:/sbin/rc sysinit' "${ROOT}/${inittab}")


But I prefer the ._cfg0000_inittab thingy...

Norberto
