inetutils 1.5 on x86_64

It seems, that it is not a general x86_64 problem, on some machines it 
works. Never the less, it does not work on all machines.

If you compare the patches for inetutils 1.4.2 and 1.5 you will see, 
that there are only minor differences. Some code that was used in 1.4.2 
is exactly the same like in 1.5. So I would expect, that if you install 
1.4.2 on the same machine you would not have the problem (but I did 
not/can't test).

Since for me the patch does his work fine...
Just wanted to share the work.
