Tiny DNS: Service does not start
I'm using pfSense 2.2.1-RELEASE with the dns-server package 1.05_20-amd64.
I've tried starting the services, both dns-server & svscan, but neither one of them will start. There's no messages in the system log indicating the problem.
Please advise, thanks.

I started working through the issues, beginning at tinydns.sh
Unfortunately it was taking more time than I have available, but at first glance it appears that the rewrite to support PBI has a bunch of missing and/or inconsistent paths/references/symlinks.
Further, I noticed differences in presence/absence of files/folders/symlinks depending on whether the system was upgraded from older pfSense, clean install, tinyDNS reinstall (over the top), or tinyDNS reinstall (remove and then install).
I suspect somebody ran a search'n'replace on the scripts and did no more than a single clean install on a fresh system for testing.
Sorry I don't have more details, and it'll be at least couple months before I can circle back to this, hopefully this is enough to help somebody else dig into it further. :(

@Michael: These issues won't go away until the PBI shit dies in 2.3. Meanwhile, I looked at the code and the only fix I can offer is symlinking a bunch of stuff to /usr/loca/bin. If that's not acceptable, I'm not touching this. Way too much pain to rewrite the heredocs in the XML file to work around PBI's idiotic paths.
