Thanks for pointing out minirc, but sinit is just an implementation of the
init(8) program, it is not tied to any particular set of init scripts
like minirc.

Without hacking minirc, sinit would not work with it as I do not want
to support an inittab file. sinit is entirely configured via config.h.

minirc has been tested with busybox init. I am trying hard to get rid
of busybox from my systems and this is my attempt at implementing a simple
init system that does the bare minimum needed. Everything else comes either
as a separate tool or as part of the init scripts (like sanitizing
PATH etc.)
