OK, after much work and no small amount of frustration, I have come up
with a "solution."
It's entirely /bin/sh script based, but does create a "daemon" that will
beep and is start/stopped from a /etc/rc.d/init.d control prog. I've
even managed to cobble together a quick (and dirty) installation script.
It's not sophisticated. It's not pretty. But it works.
Where should I stick the .z so that better coders than I can fix this

If you define a resource (a script) that produces an audiable alarm
then this can be specified in the ha-resources file and will
be started and stoped.
