Why you've moved things to /run/ - isn't it should be tmpfs in current Gentoo?

You're not the only one, but I'm using runit on Gentoo without OpenRC or
baselayout, all system initialization is done by /etc/runit/1 without
using /etc/init.d/*, and all services are started by runsv from
/var/service/ and also don't use /etc/init.d/* scripts.

Ebuilds are in overlay "powerman":
    sys-process/runit - runit
    power-misc/runit-scripts - /etc/runit/{1,2,3}
    runit-service/service-* - /service/*/
Sources for /etc/runit/{1,2,3} and /service/*/ are available at

			WBR, Alex.
