get start-stop-daemon on any Linux distribution

I switched from Debian to CentOS because I had the choice between an old 32 bits Debian 4.0 or a brand new 64 bits CentOS 5.3. And I have some scripts that use the great start-stop-daemon tool, which isn’t available on CentOS. The easiest way to solve this problem is to get dpkg from Debian and then try to compile it. It’s likely that it will fail because libselinux (and it’s subsidiary library libsepol) won’t be registered in the pkgconfig dir.
