[blfs-dev] samba's swat and xinetd

A while back we removed xinetd because it required old libraries that we 
didn't want to support and problems with portmap.

I've been working on samba and the only way they support the graphical 
configuration is via inetd or xinetd.  We've removed both of these.

I looked at xinetd and they have a new version as of 9 May 2012.  It 
builds with one minor sed to add -ltirpc.  It is even builds clean with 
one other minor sed to remove some overzealous optimization.

Should I add xinetd back to BLFS?   It's been saved in the archive 
directory so it wouldn't be hard.
