Where to get in.telnetd and rlogind for Mac OS X 10.3/Darwin - Linux / Unix Administration

See subject line. Since upgrading to 10.3, only sshd is available. Don't care for the overhead of ssh, nor having to download and install clients for most of the other machines I use....

    On my Panther box, they're both in /usr/libexec, the same place as on
    Mac OS X 10.2.x.

    Check /etc/xinetd.d/telnet to see if it contains "disable = yes". If
    so, set it to "disable = no" and restart xinetd.

    One of the clients is a VAX-11/750... Initiating an ssh
    connection on this box takes almost 45 minutes under
    NetBSD/vax 1.6.1 ;)
