Has anyone been able to get this new version to compile under Solaris?  We
are using Solaris 9, and didn't have any problems compiling the old
version using "gcc -lsocket -lnsl -o rpcscan rpcscan.c".  With the new
code below when I run it I get a "failed to set timeout" error.  I'm no
programmer.  Anyone seeing this error and can help out?  Thanks!
