Great!  InetUtils only use forkpty, not openpty, but I modified
bootstrap.conf so that it is pulled in now.  I will test it on Mac OS X,
which is the platform we had forkpty-related problems on recently.  Have
you tested it there?  I'm not sure I'm able to test it, though, as it is
only used by rlogind/telnetd, but at least I'll see if it builds or not.
