Description:Currently, if Asterisk is run as the binary 'rasterisk', it assumes remote connection.  However, the 'rasterisk' binary is never installed.

Also, forces 'rasterisk' name if the remote option is turned on.  This makes it easier for init scripts to tell if asterisk has truly shutdown yet during a restart or shutdown sequence.

The for loop does not follow the coding guidelines.

Sorry, Corydon, couldn't resist ;-)

Fair enough.

It should only be a symlink shouldn't it?

Yes a symlink is all thats needed.

But shouldn't the default be just to do -r if you don't tell it and asterisk is already running it can already tell you its already running and to use -r wouldn't just be more user friendly to just assume -r in those cases?

Committed to CVS HEAD, with mod to use symlink instead of copying binary. Thanks!
