Patch looks fine for me.

> Patch looks fine for me.

Taking back my decision, we should use netkit-rsh-0.17-pam_env.patch from
rawhide (previous patch caused memory leak)
Comment 6 RHEL Product and Program Management 2008-10-31 12:38:39 EDT
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion, but this component is not scheduled to be updated in
the current Red Hat Enterprise Linux release. If you would like
this request to be reviewed for the next minor release, ask your
support representative to set the next rhel-x.y flag to "?".
