Subject: test suite should try a little harder to get root shell

Currently, for the dejagnu tests that require root access to run the
servers, we try "rlogin myhost -l root", and give up if it fails. We
should also try "rlogin myhost -l root -x", and maybe "slogin myhost
-l root", if the basic rlogin gets connection-refused, as it probably
will in most cases nowadays.
I recently checked in a change to try "rlogin -x" by default, with
RLOGIN_FLAGS="" as an option to try unencrypted rlogin. It still only
tries rlogin in one mode, and won't try slogin or telnet. Maybe that's
good enough?
