It is also completely different from the one used in fedora or epel/centos.

This all came in via 70346a384 by you as part of the --enable-systemd
patch. It also includes the "socket activation" stuff, eg
contrib/nsd.socket that also makes absolutely no sense for a DNS server
daemon that is expected to always run anyway. And their default is
to activate it via queries received on

Note for fedora/centos, I do not compile with --enable-systemd because
of these reasons, even though I would like to enable the systemd
watchdog part that is part of that feature. Perhaps the socket
activation and software watchdog parts can be split into two different
configure options? (--enable-sd-notify and --enable-sd-socket ?)
