Quoting README:

 o GNU Inetutils does not work on Solaris.  Patches to make GNU
   Inetutils work on Solaris are happily accepted.

Thanks for working on this.

Potentially this should be solved somehow differently though -- through
a gnulib module.  I'll look into it.

This seems simpler.  Could also go into a gnulib replacement header,
I'll look into that too.

Could you try latest daily snapshot?  Solaris does have forkpty, but
needs special handling which should now be taken care of.
