There may be multiple problems, that can have different solutions,
here.  For example:

* It seems that 'telnet' might not need to initialize Shishi at all,
  unless it will use a Kerberos connection.

* The complaint is printed.

* The directory is created.

I will look into if it is simple to make inetutils defer the call to
shishi_init until Kerberos is definitely needed.

Thoughts on the other problems appreciated.

Maybe the directory should simply be created, with no warning?
