Looking at what's in the inetutils package, there is a lot of terrible crap that doesn't belong there anymore.

inetd - not really.
ftp client/server - nope.
telnet client/server - nope.
rsh client/server - hell nope wtf.
tftp client/server - okay now you're just messing with me.
syslogd - okay, but in an internet utils package?

All this is bundled with essentials like hostname, whois, and ping..


To be clear, this is because the distribution bundles them together.
