Thanks for letting us know, I was not aware OpenRC relied on insserv. I
will be extra careful not to rock the boat and break anything for OpenRC.

The good news is, there have been virtually no behaviour changes to
insserv in the latest release. All the code and build changes were just
to get insserv to compile on modern systems (with newer versions of GCC,
GNU Make, and Clang).
