Authors/Port authors:

Binkd is a TCP/IP daemon, written by Dima Maloff and others to transfer files between two FidoNet systems.

As a FTN-compatible internet daemon, it makes possible efficient utilization of TCP/IP protocol suite as a transport layer in FTN-based (Fido Technology Network) networks.

This software is distributed as compressed package. You have to download and manually install it; if prerequisites are required, you will have to manually install them too.

Several places in the code, this array was checked for nullity; however, this was always done in a place where the validity of the referring `FTN_NODE` struct pointer had already been established, and as `pwd` is an array (and not a generic pointer) it can never be NULL. These superflous checks caused warnings when compiling under `clang`. This change removes those checks to silence these warnings. Additionally, at those call sites often the code called `strcmp` to compare `p->pwd` against some other string, invariably inside of a conditional. Modify the conditionals to always explicity compare the value returned from `strcmp` against e.g. 0.
