Thanks.  Ideally configure should find this out but my change had not 
progressed to that stage.  If you have patched for configure.in, please
let us know.

Yes, NO_DUPLICATE_HOSTS is currently incompatible with PreT robots, and
I'll change the default in config.h.in in CVS.  Yes, an exception list is
probably a good idea.  There's at least two players that I know of who
connect through a common firewall.

Kill the daemon, normal kill.  Avoid -9, as it may leave the memory 
segment around.  Kill the netrekd.
