I've written a new identd for NetBSD.
It's for 1.6ZG or newer, because it uses a new sysctl method
for looking up uid's.

This identd has the following new features:

- IPv6 support.
- user ident files (to return user specified replies).
- returning random tokens.
- a 'fallback' username (for when the lookup fails), which might be 
useful on NAT gateways.

Here it is:

I've also done some work to add NAT forward/proxy support, but this is 
not finished yet.
If anyone is interested in this then please let me know and I'll send 
you the source.

Kind regards,
Peter Postma
