I first noticed that rc.conf lacked an entry for blacklistd.  I however
noticed the /etc/rc.d/blacklistd script.  I then checked how it
accumulates sockets for chroots, which seems allright for native system

chrootd_flags can also be used, but not to add socket paths.  Syslogd
allows multiple -p to append multiple sockets, and this works despite
it creating a sockets file first.

In the case of blacklistd, -P and -s are mutually exclusive and -s only
allows to set one path.  The rc.d script creates itself the file to
pass -P, so it is not possible to use -P in _flags, and the first -s
used in _flags causes it to be the only socket path that is listened to.

Thus, for my particular setup I cannot use the unmodified rc.d script,
I have to create a custom sockets file and start blacklistd using -P
in /etc/rc.local.


blacklistd_flags="-s<path> -s<path> -s<path>"

# /etc/rc.d/blacklistd start
# fstat -p $(cat /var/run/ | grep creat | wc -l


I believe that the simplest may be to have fdadd() ignore duplicates,
to first process -P and then add any present -s (or -p if wanting to be
syslogd-compatible).  It would then behave like syslogd(8).
