[ejabberd] start ejabberd on startup on ubuntu ( ejabberd built from source)

Strange, 'ejabberd start' works but 'ejabberdctl start' give me the RPC failed message.

The xmlrpc module depends on mlrpc-1.13-ipr2.gz and xmerl. I'm not sure if these modules depends on other...

I've found a startup script and it works. Can it be included as an example in the ejabberd source code
so people can test it and improve it?

I built ejabberd from source on ubuntu 8.10
It works and I can start it using ejabberdctl start.
How do I start ejabberd automatically on startup?

I can't use the ubuntu package because it doesn't work:
RPC failed on the node ejabberd at server: nodedown
Make sure you could connect to server in ejabberd at server.

In addition, I needed mod_xmlrpc. I'm not sure how to install it with the ubuntu package.
You just need to build mod_xmlrpc and copy mod_xmlrpc.beam to ejabberd/ebin, configure mod_xmlrpc in ejabberd.cfg. 
mod_xmlrpc has some dependencies and also install these.
