[Mimedefang] Basic question on start/stop

The init script expects a redhat (redhat like) Linux, the multiplexer uses a 
hardcoded kill -0 but the daemon uses a function called killproc that most 
redhat init scripts use... 

killproc expects pids in /var/run as well and is located 
in:  /etc/rc.d/init.d/functions

I expect the issue is this function is not available on your system?
