Bug#2543: update-inetd too picky about whitespace

Package: netbase
Version: 1.26-1

While configuring a system, I got the message:

Setting up netstd ...
Installing new version of config file /etc/init.d/netstd_misc ...

Trying to add the following entry:

 telnet         stream  tcp     nowait  root    /usr/sbin/tcpd  /usr/sbin/in.telnetd

There is already an entry for telnet in /etc/inetd.conf,
but I don't recognise it.  Here is what it looks like:

 telnet stream  tcp     nowait  root    /usr/sbin/tcpd  /usr/sbin/in.telnetd

Do you want to ignore this potential problem and continue, or would
you rather not do so now ?  Continue?  (n/y)


In my opinion, whitespace should be normalized (e.g. along the lines
of tr -s) when testing for entry matches.
