Well, yes, gdomap did tell me that no names are registered, however, gdnc
and gpbs ARE running:

No problem then ... most likely you didn't read the release notes about gpbs and gdnc now being private (using unix domain sockets) by default.

Oops ... I sent that incomplete email by accident ... I meant to look up where these changes are documented, and explain in more detail, but the gist of it is ...

NSConnection *default* behavior is changing to be like MacOS-X (connections private to the user and local to the host) rather than like NeXTstep (connections publicly usable across the LAN).

Private connections use NSMessagePort rather than NSSocketPort (implemented using unix domain sockets) and their names are handled by entries in the local filesystem accessible only to the owning user account ... so they don't appear in gdomap (which deals with names of connections used for network connections which can be used to communicate between different users and different machines).

So ... you should not expect to see gpbs and gdnc registered with gdomap by default now ... unless you are running windows ... since windows does not have unix domain sockets, and therefore does not have private (NSMessagePort) connections.
