I for one will miss it. I used libexec/telnetd extensively during ia64 bootstrap (and still use it) before we had the crypto stuff going. This was all built by hand, 'make world' still isn't an option there. I also use usr.bin/telnet on other systems where SRA is constantly getting in my face and annoying the !^@#%!@^#!# out of me. I really dont see that this has to be done this way. FreeBSD committers catch on to quirks in the tree pretty quickly. I would much rather that the unifdef step marked the generated files more prominantly so that we didn't have accidents. It would be a shame to complicate things when it just takes a bit of committer education. How about making the unifdef: targets whack on large "BEWARE! GENERATED FILE!" warnings all over the beginning and end of each of them instead?
