Hi guys,

Here's a patch that is being added to the BLFS repository. I have
asked for instructions on how to download the SVN patches repository
and commit to it, but I've never received any. I suppose I could figure
it out, but if one of y'all could commit this patch, I would appreciate

Though this patch is for daemons that are insecure by nature, there
is still some practical uses for the inet daemons for some folks. This
patch fixes some issues:

1. Fixes the rexecd daemon so that it understands shadow passwords.
2. Fixes the rshd daemon so that it properly resolves hostnames.
