I think this is ill-conceived.  The telnet sources distributed with MIT
krb5 *are the canonical telnet sources that we track in NetBSD*.  There is
just no reason at all to have two copies in the tree, an "MIT" version
and "our" version.  Our version should be updated with whatever changes MIT
made since we last synced up.
