BUG AND PATCH: loginutils Config.in is broken

Ok, looking more closely at this:
There are actually ten applets in the loginutils menu, and the only one that
shadow passwd support _doesn't_ inpact is getty, and it's possible that
should be in the "init" menu anyway. So I'm feeling pretty good about
yanking the dependency here.
On a related issue, I'm looking at the utmp and wtmp options, and the
dependencies there are a little twisted. These are placed as sub-options of
getty, but they're not really. wtmp is selected by last (in miscutils), and
utmp is selected by who (in coreutils), or a tangle of "utmp plus something
It sounds like the utmp and wtmp options under getty are really "support this
even if nothing else calls for it", and that the real support should be a
separate symbol calculated based on the dependencies.
But that's a 1.2 issue.

I do not think it means what you think it means.
