Your .ports file is broken. You need to have quotes around the 3rd word, but statistics has no quotes. This causes the parser to decided that the line is bad, and ignore it. If you look at the variable num_progs in the scope of main(), you'll see that it is only 3 and not 4. This shouldn't cause netrekd any problems, but you might want to fix your file. Also, do you have a .nocount file? It needs to be in LIBDIR and be readable by the netrekd process. Otherwise netrekd will spawn /usr/ucb/netstat on each connection, yuck. IMHO, a .count file to turn on this feature would make more sense.
