dockd seems to be unmaintained and not working on new systems anymore.

hooks don't work, --help seems broken:

$ dockd --help
Usage: dockd [OPERAND] [?ARGUMENT]

    dockd --help                        - show this help dialog
    dockd --config [docked|undocked]    - write config files
    dockd --set [docked|undocked]       - set the saved config
    dockd --daemon                      - start the dock daemon
Invalid --config option: . See --help
Unknown option: óú1íIÑ^HâHäðPTL. See --help
[[?1;2cSegmentation fault (core dumped)

creating a config $ dockd --config docked results in endless console spamming of config file written to /etc/dockd/undocked.conf

Hey, I disowned the package if someone want to take over it.

It would appear the website has expired, but Github Pages was being used as the backend for it anyway. Rather than posting a contextless patch, you should state the actual problem and why you believe the patch is a good idea.

`dockd --config undocked`
`dockd --config docked`

I tested on few machines, and the directory /etc/dockd/ is created.

The package does not create `/etc/dockd` resulting in an error when using --config:
"error writing config file: No such file or directory"
