IPPROTO_IP is not a macro in Linux, so don't check it with #ifdef.
Also, add initial experimental login wrapper, but don't make it
part of the default build.
netkit-telnet-0.16 is released.
Per recommendation of the linux-security-audit list, don't bother
(in telnetd) to ask termcap/ncurses if a terminal type is good;
assume it is. This means telnetd no longer links against termcap.
Massive buffer cleanup in telnetd; minor cleanup to telnet.
Remove some more bogus #ifdefs in telnet.
Fix latent bug in the array classes used in telnet.

Patches for compiling with gcc 2.95. (Jeremy Buhler,
telnetd patch from Chris Evans to reject termcap entries with
'/' in them, as libtermcap will treat them as paths and open
them as root, with various interesting consequences...
Issue found by Tymm Twillman (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Massive cleanup of telnetd. Changed telnetd to use openpty() from
libutil, so we can let libc deal with changes in pty management.
Did complete y2k and y2038 audit.
Redid makefiles/config stuff for new confgen version.
Set the process title (visible with ps) to show the remote host name.
Also filter control characters from the remote host name, just in case.
Set environment variable REMOTEHOST also.
Added OPOST to the terminal stuff a la NCSA telnet fixup
Assorted signed/unsigned character fixes and hacking in telnet.

8-bit fix to telnet. (Lukas Wunner, firstname.lastname@example.org)
Set ut_type correctly in telnetd's logout. (Steve Coile,
Added configure script to generate MCONFIG.
Better utmp handling in telnetd.
Split from full NetKit package.

Hardened programs against DNS h_length spoofing attacks.
Use inet_aton() everywhere instead of inet_addr().
Fixed crash in telnet caused by ^C or ^Z or ^\ under
Rewrote telnet and telnetd man pages.
(almost) everything now compiles with lots of warnings turned on.
Massive hacking on telnet.
telnet honors the -E flag (was broken in .07, .07A)
telnetd intercepts ENV environment variable.
Merged libtelnet into telnet and telnetd dirs.
telnetd now sets idle tty devices to root.root mode 600.
Fixed a bug in telnet where the escape character was being ignored.
Fixed a bug in telnetd; now uses the correct names for the last ptys
(that is, ptya0-ptyef, not ptyA0-ptyEf.)
Integrated a collection of patches that had been lurking on the net,
including the 256-ptys support for telnetd and passive mode ftp.
Major security fixes, including to fingerd, lpr, rlogin, rsh, talkd,
and telnetd. Do *not* use the sliplogin from earlier versions of this
Much of the code builds without libbsd.a or bsd includes.
Massive code cleanup. Almost everything compiles clean with gcc
-Wall now. rusers and rusersd do not; patches to rpcgen to fix
this would be appreciated if anyone feels like it.
Kerberos support has been removed. It didn't work anyway, and
proper Kerberos tools come with Kerberos.

telnetd: changed the default 'etc/issue.net' to not output the
hostname and then the domainname (that should be the fqdn, but
is wrong!) Changed also the man page issue.net.5
changed telnetd to get the fqdn and not only use what
telnetd: changed some code back to original form to properly
enable binary mode negotiation (outgoing data wasn't binary)
Please test this out: do "telnet some_other_not_linux_host" and
then do "vi TEST_FILE" and test some strange characters >127
like � or �.
telnetd: added issue.net.5 to "make install"
