Because it is COMPILED IN facility, not external something
that is run from the inetd, and which then execs the
smtpserver. (The way the tcpd is usually used.)
Both the smtpserver, and the scheduler have code that check
on if the connection comes from an acceptable IP address.
(which might not be worth of much...)
If the header (tcpd.h) is present, but the libwrap.a can't
be found, it isn't worth claiming having found it...
