It didn't. the openwrt screws up the link. They didnt specify the proper
variable to get /etc/init.d/

Odd. I removed ps -p occurances which it was using for -d /proc/$pid tests
just to avoid these. I guess no one tried to use ipsec status before.

Looking through _realsetup (called by ipsec status), the only ps call
I see is "ps -C pluto".

While it does not work as expected on my kamikaze 7.07 (it shows all
processes instead of only those matching the -C argument), it does not
give me an error.

However, openwrt has pidof, which we can use to replace ps -C.
