Great, thanks.

I have also noticed that the build gives a warning about not installing
a systemd service. I don't think I've changed anything to affect that
but it does look like a change from earlier. I've pushed my current
V1.4.0-0devuan1 package to my fork
(https://git.devuan.org/RobPearce/slim) so if someone would like to
quickly cast an eye over it, that would be great.
