in current state .ini file must have at least three sections: [ogrp2], 
[ogrng] and [rc5-72]. proxy will not run if even one of them is missing.

theoretically, it's possible to remove few lines of source code for 
closed [ogrp2] contest but it's rather useless because code for ogr-ng 
and -p2 is shared almost completely.

i'm sure you've unintentionally removed the section yourself. perproxy 
not created missed .ini sections automatically and refused to start in 
such cases for quite a few years.
