A recent illumos bugfix broke the Kayak build (only on bloody for now).  Kayak assumes that svccfg in an alternate root only requires a background svc.configd.  It ALSO requires a background svc.startd.

I discussed this with the author of 5896-7, and he recommended that Kayak use the "-native" versions of svccfg in illumos-{gate,omnios}, because that's how the ON build populates SMF repositories as well.  The following webrev:


illustrates the changes.  I don't know how many people use kayak to BUILD images, but if you do, you should please take a look at this before the next stable release comes out.
