I can't imagine why you had to hack rsh.  A .rhosts file should be
plenty for both rsh and rcp.  You have to be careful which of Debian's
rsh packages you install - don't get the kerberized ones.

I use rsh+NFS; half the NFS patches are in DejaGNU and the other half
in my tree waiting for me to get around to it.  Sorry.
