Re: RPC and NFS port for cygwin


I am trying to get a SUNRPC package for cygwin together.  However when I
read the license packaged with the original sources, it seems I cannot
distribute it.  I tried to e-mail to Sun ( as named in the
license) to ask for an exemption but my e-mail came back (user unknown).  Do
you or anyone else know of anyone who can get me in touch with Sun about
this issue?
