Ah ha, the missing link!  I wish I would have known about /bin/iu-config a long
time ago.  Hopefully this bit of information will make it into the readme.

Have you had luck getting server-side of CVS working with inetd?

I don't have a /etc/services.  Do you know where the port numbers for ftp,
telnet, etc. are kept?

Thanks for the tip!
