I am having problem running rdist from a Sun sparc running SunOS 4.1.3
to a FreeBSD box.  I compiled rdist 6.1.0 on the Sun and on FreeBSd.  The
latter needed to be compiled as bsdi since there were no FreeBSD options
in the config directory

 I compiled rdist version 6.1.0 using bsdi as my operating system -
 there was no FreeBSD template in config.  The thing compiled OK.  When
 I rdist a file from a Sun, if the file does not exist on FreeBSD it would
 install it fine.  If I try a second time from the Sun, I would get a
 segmentation violation on the remote machine.  The same rdist 6.1.0
 works fine on Linux.  So there you have it.  I would like your help to
 see if something can be done about this.

The FreeBSD machine is running 2.1.0, the SNAP version.

P.S.  I sent mail to the rdist bug list but have had no response.
