Note on this - as far as tcpwrappers is concerned, the rwhoisd-1.5.9
package has a configure script that doesen't check for the
existence of tcpwrappers already being on the system, however
the rwhoisd dameon requires the libwrap library at link time.
The maintainers of the rwhois daemon package solve this by
simply including the distribution of wrappers version
7.6_ipv6.3 in a directory of the rwhois distribution, and
configure makes a makefile that compiles that and creates a
static libwrap library that is later linked into rwhoisd with
gcc -o rwhoisd class_directive.o ... -L../tools/tcpd_wrapper -lwrap ...
Doing a make install does not appear to install these wrapper
I would support removing the tcpwrappers dependency as there
seems no use for it. Instead modify the rwhoisd makefile to
remove the -L../tools/tcpd_wrapper specifier and let it link
in with the system libwrap.
