I'd like to see REAL proof of this. Different file sizes don't prove anything. When I compile freebsd, i have certain optimization flags set for the compiler as well as settings for 6x86 cpus. That makes the file size different too! In order to prove anything, you would have to compile the code in the exact same way it is built for FreeBSD releases. In reality, only the source code "changes" would prove it. I'm not above conspiracy theories, but this seems far fetched.

telnetd is infected with a national security backdoor in all non-source compiled versions of FreeBSD, NetBSD and OpenBSD. If you download the source code for telnetd and compile it to compare the file size of the "stock" or "out of the box" version of telnetd versus the source-compiled version - you will clearly see a difference - which is the backdoor. This information should be forwarded to CERN and the BSD and Linux development teams. [ ... ]Please don't feed the troll. The size difference is in "stripped" vs "non-stripped", btw.
telnetd eh? how... quaint :)
