Any of those files could actually work.  They are all shell-scripts that
start qmail, but with slightly different options, or using different
support-programs.  I can't find a description of exactly what the difference
between them is, so you will probably have to look through them to see which
one suits your setup best.  (There are comments in each of them giving a
brief description of what it does.)
