Thanks for catching that, sorry. The middle button of my mouse acts up

I've no problem doing that once everything else is finalized.

That has been in there since the 4.0 release. I cannot find out what
problem it was supposed to solve (it was introduced at the end of 2010).
I can remove it if setup.exe already does that.

I still need to wait for Chuck to create an inetutils package without
/etc/defaults/etc/shells. Then we'll probably need someone with
sourceware access to create the four !ready files so that the upload
gets done in synchrony.
