Notice also that there is a difference between core- and inetutils:
our configure.ac gives installer a possibility to build only a subset

as it was written back ago when Automake did not support DIST_SUBDIRS.
The latter would greatly simplify it, but it relies on each utility
residing in its dedicated subdirectory.

I'm curious if anyone actually uses that functionality.  I suspect that having switches for just clients / daemons / system tools would be enough to cover every reasonable use case.
