   uhm, i'm having a look at it, but doesn't seem very portable:

     cache.c:#include <hurd/fsys.h>
     cache.c:#include <hurd/io.h>
     cache.c:#include <hurd/auth.h>
     ops.c:#include <hurd/io.h>
     ops.c:#include <hurd/fs.h>
     ops.c:#include <hurd/paths.h>
     nfsd.h:#include <hurd/fs.h>

That doesn't seem to much to fix...  Or is that an incomplete list?

   the "User-Space NFS Server" (UNFSD) is suposed to be portable. it
   has been used on other Unices like BSD, SunOS, HP-UX and AIX, and
   more mature (it's been originaly based on the sunrpc3.9 package),
   so if the license problem can be worked out i'd want to use
   that. otherwise it probably is still better to get rid of the ~900
   lines of badly licensed code.

If you can take care of the licenseing problems for unfsd, then I
don't think anyone will object to including it in inetutils (or making
it an seperate package).

   on the licenses, does the following sound GPL-compatible to you?:

Looks GPL compatible, but to be sure you should really ask a FSF
lawyer.  But that doesn't matter, if you want to include it in
inetutils (or make it into an GNU package) you will need to get the
copyright holder to assign copyright to the FSF.
