Looking a bit more at this, and the manpage. The second param is
usually referred to as "servername" or "service". It's supposed
to be either NULL, or either a service name or a decimal port
number (wow this is just so much better explained in the IRIX
manpage). I take it that it wasn't really meant to specify
the decimal port number 0, was it? That was taken as an
illegal value on AIX anyway.
