They were removed since uClibc does not support STREAMS,
and stropts.h exists to provide STREAMS support.  Having
stropts.h but no STREAMS support causes configure scripts
to misbehave.

The latest Debian source uses an inetutils CVS snapshot named
which includes a configure check for the presence of
stropts.h and does the Right Thing(tm).  You may want to
grab inetutils from CVS, or pull that tarball from the debian
