Your changes look sane.  I didn't comment on this report because I
failed to reproduce it: installing shibboleth-sp2-utils starts and
enables shibd on my test system, and after a reboot it's running again.
I guess the SysV compatibility layer hides the issue from me, possibly
because I still have some packages installed which aren't essential
anymore.  But I haven't found the time to dig deeper yet.  The full
Shibboleth stack is about to be removed from stretch due to the OpenSSL
transition, which is a more pressing issue at the moment.
