Sometimes people forget to add the autoenable statement to the .cloginrc
file when adding a new device which causes xrancid failure to make a

I though it would make sense to always add the -autoenable argument to
clogin call in xrancid to circumvent this issue. (See attached patch)

Wat do you think, could/should this patch be included in the default
tarball of RANCID?

Greetings Arjan
