Found it! configure did not check whether <utmp.h> exists, so
HAVE_UTMP_H was always undefined. FreeBSD8 does not have getutent(), so
the compatibility implementation in lib/utils.c should have been used,
but that relied on HAVE_UTMP_H.

I modified the configure script to check that header too, and the
problem is fixed.

Thanks for the report!
