"+" entry doesn't work in hosts.equiv

- Subject: "+" entry doesn't work in hosts.equiv
Under current Linux, the "+" entry in hosts.equiv is allowed if you have :
"auth required /lib/security/pam_rhosts_auth.so promiscuous"
in the /etc/pam.d/rsh file
since cygwin has no pam, is there a way to get the + to work (or something
we have over 2000 constantly changing hosts, and keeping the hosts.equiv
updated is a bit of a nightmare..
(I've been getting around this for the last number of months by having an
empty passwd field in passwd file, but this is a bad solution)
