Yes you're right. Unfortunately I was not very familiar with the way inetd  
works (now I know that it redirects a network socket input/output data to  
stdin of a program).

Unfortunately, I'm still having problems (because althought I am able to  
call the program the execution fails because of dynamic libraries).

It's a bit strange because I installed it with pkgutil... so  
everything "should" be ok.
