openconnect on slackware

	I installed openconnect on slackware and found that the
vpnc-script have one annoying problem.

	The vpnc-script installed by openconnect script tried to
reconfigure slackware network configs files (rc.inet1.conf, hosts, 
resolv.conf and others) because it is testing the existence of
/sbin/netconfig and use it... the problem is that is trying to
use it as the SuSE netconfig and is totally weird and wrong to use the
the slackware netconfig to configure the vpn connection. Any user that
don't cancel it might mess up his network config without knowing

	The solution is the attached patch, that bypass that test
for the /sbin/netconfig on slackware machines. So please merge this
small patch to fix this issue.

	Thanks for openconnect! :)

Naturally the common people don't want war... but after all it is the
leaders of a country who determine the policy, and it is always a 
simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or
a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship.
Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of
the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are 
being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and
exposing the country to danger.  It works the same in every country.
