[PLUG] More Slackware init script questions

   In /etc/rc.d/rc.M are sections to fire up httpd and gpm upon booting:

# Start Apache web server:
if [ -x /etc/rc.d/rc.httpd ]; then
   . /etc/rc.d/rc.httpd start

# Start the GPM mouse server:
if [ -x /etc/rc.d/rc.gpm ]; then
   . /etc/rc.d/rc.gpm start

   Both rc.httpd and rc.gpm exist and are executable. But, neither is invoked
during boot. I need to manually fire them up -- as root, of course. Can
someone please explain why these aren't working?
