Well, I just tried again, and this time vanilla rshd/rlogind/rcp 
built and ran without any trouble.  I must have been smoking crack before.

I did have to use tcpdump and strace a few times to figure out
well-known things like "rsh without a command is a synonym for rlogin"
and "rcp must be in the path on the remote side, too",
but that wasn't too bad.  The resulting binaries are nice and small, too,
if you have shared libararies, anyway...
