Certainly, once you make the decision to use the inetutils version, it's 
easy to figure out how to install just the telnet client, just the same 
as if you choose to use netkit-telnet. I guess my point is: why is the 
inetutils version preferred over the netkit version, particularly when 
you consider that LFS goes the other way when installing ping and inetd 
(i.e. netkit-base)?
