It is impossible to launch sensord.service from systemd since rrdtool is an optional dependency. rrdtool should be a mandatory dependency for lm_sensors
The service startup fails with
/usr/sbin/sensord: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Additional info:
Package: lm_sensors 3.4.0-1

Steps to reproduce:
# systemctl start sensord.service
Running fails the error above.
