        LGPL2.1 is compatible with GPL version 3 and later.
        So if a library is released under LGPL 2.1, it can be used
        in inetutils.

    But isn't there a difference between something licensed under
    LGPLv2.1-only and LGPLv2.1-or-later?

There is some difference, but it isn't a crucial difference.

      We don't want dependencies on
    packages licensed under anything-only in GNU, do we?

That's not an issue for abstract blanket principles, that's 
an issue for license compatibility.  The issue does not arise
with LGPL2.1.
