[ the important bit is at the end ]


i've commited some changes to rcmd(3) to allow alternative methods of
executing programs on remote hosts (eg, ssh).  if you set the RCMD_CMD
variable to something, eg `ssh', users of rcmd(3) will actually use
ssh to make the remote connection.

due to rcp(1), dump(1) and restore(1) wanting to use the TOS_THROUGHPUT
socket option, i have (for now) forced them to use the old cold.  i
will be addressing this shortly.

however, i have removed the setuid bit from rdist(1) !

WHAT THIS MEANS FOR YOU:  you will *have* to update your libraries 
(well, at least libc) for this change, before compiling userland.
