What does that mean exactly?  I think those files are better
distributed by your operating system vendor than having them be part
of inetutils.  

Since many distributions now use systemd as init system, many projects now provides
the systemd files to enable/start/etc their daemons. This remove duplicate works for the distibution maintainers and the upstream developpers are better suited to handle these files as they know the best way to operate their daemon.  Supporting systemd would mean adding these file to the source tarball and installing them in /usr/lib/systemd/system (default location).  Some project make use of a --with-systemdsystemunitdir configure switch to change the installation directory.
We don't use xinetd, instead we use inetd which is part
of inetutils.

In that case, I suppose you can ignore the part about xinetd support.
