There are already _two_ recent logins:  

1) Nlogin, avaiable on SpareMiNT by Guido.
2) Login, available on GNU/MiNT by Nocrew.

Also, people might have an old KGMD login lying around.  Either
way, it's no excuse not to support /bin/login by default.

Well, even RSA key generation took about 30 minutes using this
new ssh-keygen.  Thank God, people don't have to create new keys
all the time! ;-)

This was not the case previously until GCC 2.81, though, was it?
Why try fixing something that was not broken?  Vitut pingviinit!
