Someone helpfully put "(cd ${.CURDIR}/share/mk && ${MAKE} install)" in
the top Makefile's "make build" rules.....

I think this was cleaned up somewhat just last week, or in any case it
was clean enough to compile and install.  I've run telnet, and telnetd
works, though beyond that I've done little testing.  I'm currently

open a connection to the virtual or aliased interface of another host on
the same ethernet.
