a rexecd|rshd patch available for 3.0

Contributed by Dengue on from the errata dept.

Patch 016 is now available for OpenBSD 3.0. To quote errata.html :
"Under certain conditions, on systems using YP with netgroups in the password database, it is possible for the rexecd(8) and rshd(8) for the rexecd and rshd daemons to execute the shell from a different user's password entry. Due to a similar problem, atrun(8) may change to the wrong home directory when running at(1) jobs."
