Libdaemon is a lightweight C library that eases the writing of UNIX

It consists of the following parts:

* A wrapper around fork() which does the correct daemonization
procedure of a process
* A wrapper around syslog() for simpler and compatible log output to
Syslog or STDERR
* An API for writing PID files
* An API for serializing UNIX signals into a pipe for usage with
select() or poll()
* An API for running subprocesses with STDOUT and STDERR redirected
to syslog.
