This, I wasn't sure for. Okay.. >=106 should do.

2.3.8, I've patched, and compiled. no problem there.

That, I'm sure on. w and last do work, but mainly for those who are
coming in from a VT/Console. most of the programs come in the latest
util-linux, but some, like su, biff, and telnet, don't. Hopefully, either
the source will be released for that, or the binaries recompiled for
OpenPTY use (YMMV for different dists). Ahh well..
