 I recently modified the inetutils instructions in BLFS to only install the
 servers, as everything else is already installed in LFS. I felt it
 redundant. I also put a comment in the "command explanations" that if you
 want the client programs to remove the --disable-clients line from the
 configure script.

 I'll leave the ticket open for a couple of days in case anyone wants to
 comment, but discussion really belongs on -dev. This issue is not a
 defect. It is by design.
