Description Dan Mahoney 2007-12-10 21:20:01 UTC
In patching rinetd as part of ports, the default configuration file is changed from the "distributed" /etc/rinetd.conf to 
the "portsified" /usr/local/etc/rinetd.conf

Fix: A small patch (not sure I did it right):

NOTE: I originally had emailed the ports author since I felt this was a small and not pr-worthy-fix, but I ran into an issue 
whereby his mailer rejected my SPF because it didn't recognize the FreeBSD forwarder.--YEZxrKJM6fnH8oLDqz84lRXwfzkkEhxh0cOgTQy5G46QvxyB
