This is interesting, but we will need to create a new patch for it. It still contains a lot to things we do not want to install. From the current patch:

  1. Remove programs superceeded by other packages: wall, mountpoint, last, lastb, mesg, sulogin, and utmpdump.

The other issues in the patch are addressed in the new version.
