inetutils permissions?

rlogin, rsh, and I think rcp need to be setuid root, because they have to use privileged ports.  But they were installed without the setuid root permission set (they worked normally after setting it by hand).

Is there any reason that isn't set as part of installation? Granted it's not without downside, but someone that's using the old r-commands probably isn't too worried about that anyway.
