You might want to start gdnc from a shell script in /usr/local/etc/rc.d
See the attached files.

To use them, edit 'gdomap_if' and and change the line

  aaa.bbb.ccc.ddd zzz.yyy.xxx.www

to reflect your network settings. The first is your IP, the second is
your netmask, eg.

Put 'gdomap_if' in /usr/local/etc.

Take a look at 'GNUstep.sh' and edit the path to reflect your GNUstep
installation (on my box, GNUstep is installed in / directly)




Put 'GNUstep.sh' in /usr/local/etc/rc.d (make sure it's executable)
