Description

Illumos contains very old rdist implementation, which is protocol-incompatible with "new" 20 years old rdist and that one is also 10 years dead. rdist should be removed, it is wasting time and space only. There are much better (secure/fast/maintained) replacements like rsync.

FWIW, it looks like rshd has some code to handle rdist invocation.
