  i chose to build from source and, along with numerous compile
warnings related to buffer sizes, after installation completed and i
tried to browse, i got "404 Not Found" and i suspect it's related to
this diagnostic message:

/usr/local/lib/fossology/fo-postinstall: line 314:
/etc/init.d/apache2: No such file or directory

  which represents:

if /etc/init.d/apache2 status > /dev/null; then    <-- 314
  /etc/init.d/apache2 reload

  is this related to the fact this is a systemd-oriented distro, and
that the corresponding symlink needs to go elsewhere?
