I had to recompile login too.

Well, my 'fstab hack' is the only way I've ever been able to telnet to
the box and I automated correct mounting in that part of rc.sysconfig
and fire up inetd. I guess, I have to rewrite rc.sysconfig in order to
see what is teesing me. Even making /sbin/init a symlink to rc.sysconfig
doesn't make things work ok, the 'fstab hack' works again, a correct
fstab and the box is unreachable. :-(
