What is it about the code that doesn't conform to the RFC?

The same argument would hold for Arnt's own srv.{h,c} code, from 1998,
which is part of old BIND contrib/srv/, and hopefully soon also
gnulib.  (The code above is derived from his code.)

I'm only offering another option here.  If the GNU InetUtils
