Wow!
Even /etc/services from Mac OS/X (in turn taken from FreeBSD) has many
more entries.

[id-est:ws/trunk/wiretap] lego% sed 's/#.*//; s/[ \t]+//;'
/etc/services | grep -v -c '^$'
8059
[id-est:ws/trunk/wiretap] lego% sed 's/#.*//; s/[ \t]+//;'
../../../nmap-4.20/nmap-services | grep -v -c '^$'
2273

This has no (c) notice so I believe we we can use it.
$ sed 's/#.*//; s/[ \t]+//;' port-numbers | grep -v -c '^$'
10285

;-)

I would guess the MAC OS/X file is an older version of the IANA port-numbers file.
The IANA file itself also doesn't have a copyright notice, so we might 
simply use it ...
