I go to a lot of trouble to disable anacron, so I've had to discover
how it is enabled in order to disable it. It starts with /etc/cron.d/0hourly
which has the line that runs the anacron stuff via cron every hour.
This is installed by package "cronie". That is what makes the
/etc/cron.hourly/0anacron script run, and that, in turn, examines
the /etc/anacrontab file. (At least the last time I figured it
out, that was the way it worked - it keeps changing :-).
