Avahi package won't start (with work around)

Avahi won't start from the gui and nothing is logged. I was able to track down a few issues and resolve them from the command line. I suspect the package needs some work for 2.2.
It looks for: /usr/pbi/avahi-amd64/sbin/avahi-daemon
But avahi-daemon is installed at: /usr/pbi/avahi-amd64/local/sbin/avahi-daemon
After fixing that path, I get this error:
Shared object "libavahi-common.so.3" not found, required by "avahi-daemon"
I resolved that with: ldconfig -m /usr/pbi/avahi-amd64/local/lib/
Then: Failed to open file '/usr/local/etc/avahi/avahi-daemon.conf': No such file or directory
Fixed that with: ln -s /usr/pbi/avahi-amd64/etc/avahi/avahi-daemon.conf avahi-daemon.conf
The service runs now and I can control it from the GUI. I'm sure this isn't the proper solution, but it worked for me.
I also added executed these commands so the ldconfig is persistent across reboots:
echo '#\!/bin/sh' > /usr/local/etc/rc.d/000-ldconfig.sh echo '/sbin/ldconfig -m /usr/pbi/avahi-amd64/local/lib/' >> /usr/local/etc/rc.d/000-ldconfig.sh chmod a+x /usr/local/etc/rc.d/000-ldconfig.sh
