Re: [bug-inetutils] [PATCH] Use `test -e' instead of `test -r' when testing paths

While testing paths, ./configure uses test -r to check for those who
are not provided by system headers. However, this does not work for
root-only files. On hurd-i386 for instance, /dev/klog is only root
readable, so the test fails, and thus inetutils-syslogd doesn't fill
/dev/kern.log. ./configure should use test -e instead.
Good to go, do you have push rights, and copyright assignments?
