That's the wrong way to do it. Start/ stop order is defined by the so called
LSB headers[*]. If the existing LSB header is wrong, you can override it in

The files in /etc/rc?.d should then be "compiled" by insserv. That program
runs whenever updating a package requires it, and it is going to undo any
manual fixes. To prevent that, I replaced it with a script like so:

676-north:tmp# file `which insserv`
/sbin/insserv: POSIX shell script, ASCII text executable
677-north:tmp# cat !$
cat `which insserv`
#! /bin/sh
echo "*******************************************************" >&2
echo "insserv: called as $0 $*" >&2
echo "call fix-init instead" >&2
echo "*******************************************************" >&2
exit 0

Where fix-init[†] is a Perl script I coded trying to take into account existing
fixes. Caution: use it if you dare.
