   Well, I'd imagine that the first step would be to make sure that IANA 
hasn't assigned that port to someone else:

bash-2.05$ fetch -qo - | grep 3305
odette-ftp      3305/tcp   ODETTE-FTP
odette-ftp      3305/udp   ODETTE-FTP

   Once you've picked an unused port, you should register your choice with 
IANA ( to make sure that 
nobody else decides to use it.
   As other people have pointed out, the final step would be to send-pr a 
patch to include the appropriate new lines.
