Err... no. If pidof exits with non-zero then 'kill -HUP ...' does
not run. That was the point.

If you really think that with some variant of pidof you may run
with an empy $gconfd_pids list then check explicitely for that
gconfd_pids=$(pidof gconfd-2) && [ "$gconfd_pids" ] && kill -HUP $gconfd_pids
but this is already paranoid. Maybe you meant
kill -HUP $(pidof gconfd-2) >/dev/null 2>&1 || :
This is not really so clean and
pkill -HUP gconfd-2
already checks if there are processes to which to send a signal but
then you have a dependency on procps. I am not sure if that can
be reasonably assumed.
