telnetd patch

Running Linux with unix98-style PTYs (implemented through devfs), I found 
that I could not run the telnetd program from inetutils-1.3.2g. Whenever I 
tried to connect telnetd aborted with an error message saying "All network 
ports in use". From the source code I learned that this message was nonsense, 
the actual error being a failure to allocate a pty. I created a patch that 
changes the error message to something sensible, and enables telnetd to use 
unix98 ptys by doing a run-time check for /dev/ptmx. Patch attached.
