I've added an new option,

    updatesrv -port 2433

which will force it to bind to port 2433 and register that port with
rpc2portmap. Of course updateclnt will still be bind an arbitrary port,
but now you can have a firewall rule that only allows other coda servers
to connect to the updatesrv daemon. It is a pretty trivial change, it
will be part of coda-6.0.9.
