[arch-general] Why is there no tftp client in inetutils?

as I need a tftp client in order to reflash my WRT54GL I realised that Arch 
Linux hasn't got one in the main repositories. Normally "tftp" is part of 
Inetutils (http://www.gnu.org/software/inetutils/). Looking at the PKGBUILD of 
"inetutils" confuses me, as it explicitly disables tftp.

I know that I can easily rebuild the package, but I'm wondering why it is 
disabled by default? At least you should provide a seperate tftp package, as 
there are certainly people who need a tftp client, for instance me ;).

Best regards,
