Dear NetBSDers,
   There are two talk protocols - one used in BSD4.2 and earlier and one
used in BSD4.3 and later.  NetBSD0.9 had in it's inet.conf talk -> 
/usr/old/talkd and an entry for talk in /etc/services.  NetBSD1.0 had
no entry for inetd.conf talk (just ntalk) but did have an entry in 

   Some other systems (in particular a SUN I am trying to talk with) uses
talk not ntalk.  

   Where would be the best place to get the sources for talkd which use
the older talk protocol for a NetBSD machine?
