	Fore some reason doesn't rlogin work from one NetBSD host to another
	if the stty field min has the value zero. This i very annoying since
	xterm from the latest XFree86 distribution sets min to zero.
	This seems to be an error in rlogin since it doesn't matter
	to what type of host I try to connect to.

    spot> stty min 0
    spot> rlogin cyan
    rlogin: closed connection.
    spot> stty min 1
    spot> rlogin cyan

	Do some type of sanity check either print an error message or
	correct the value of VMIN in rlogin.
