I did some more work on the patch and rewritten the original ident code
in nnrpd, which was really ugly.
The bug with multiple listening socket in rc.c has not been fixed,
I have to look some more at the code to understand where it's broken.

Thinking again about it, I realized the listening code is needed anyway
for implementing nnrpd -D, so I will write a library function which will
be used by both programs (inndstart will continue to use its own code).

I hope it will be finished in a week, I'm not sure I'll have the time to
work on it in the next days.
