I just noticed a problem with dbmail that highlights a method we used to

What do you do if a daemon script starts multiple daemons?
/etc/rc.d/dbmail can start dbmail-imapd, dbmail-pop3d, dbmail-lmtpd and it
runs add_daemon dbmail-imapd, dbmail-pop3d, and dbmail-lmtpd.

One option is to just run "add_daemon dbmail" to signal arch that we need
to stop the dbmail daemon script.  Is this what we want to do or are there
other ways to fix it?
