Yes one of the problem was STREAM base pty "/dev/ptmx".  I put some
code in libinetutils/{forkpty,openpty}.c to cope with this and
rlogind should call forkpty(), I think I commited the code in,

The other was UTMPX and how it was handle by svr4 and Solaris,
think I commited some code in there too.

The last was spawning /bin/login with the right argument.

Thanks! let me know the result, sometimes an strace(truss) -p <rlogind_pid>
was a big help.

Yes, we've been moving some code out of telnetd to clean the mess.
But it takes time.
