Telnet client.

Given the number of threads in the archive started by people (having 
valid reasons to use telnet rather than SSH) who want a telnet client 
without any other cruft such as that installed by inetutils, it would 
seem worthwhile to have a section in BLFS for installing a telnet 
client. This could either use netkit-telnet or simply provide 
instructions for installing only telnet from inetutils, and could even 
include the standard "DON'T USE TELNET, USE SSH" warning.

What do you think?

Sorry if this has been done to death already, I got lost somewhere in 
the 960 posts that a search for 'telnet' on the lists returns.
