Can I delete my posts? No? I guess I have to answer it then.
I was browsing bugs.gentoo.org and somebody wrote there acpid is not needed with ACPI in kernel. I posted here without thinking first. Now, after some reflection I'd say acpid listens for ACPI events like powerbutton, etc. ACPI support in kernel is needed for acpid to run.
