   Just like we call our work "GNU Inetutils", they call theirs "Linux
   NetKit" (see the manpage).

It does not matter what they call it, NetKit runs on GNU/Linux, we
should call it GNU/Linux NetKit since it is a set of tools that run on
the GNU operating system that uses Linux as its kernel.  We should not
propagate their confusion.
