I'm not disagreeing, but the original post complained of something being 
wrong in some documentation. Most reference and tutorial pages for 
djbdns and other djb stuff like qmail assume a /service directory, 
rather than /var/service. Using /var/service does seem more logical, but 
can be a source of confusion, especially if people are copying and 
pasting commands from online instructions, something the various 
references often suggest.

Shouldn't it be:

# svstat /var/service/dnscache
