Sounds like the "make install_setuids" installation step wasn't done.

You'll need to change the ownership of both "bin/hupsyslog" and "bin/rpc.ldmd" 
to "root". You'll also need to set their setuid bit.

The LDM server, bin/rpc.ldmd, needs to be owned by root and setuid in order to 
bind to its well-known port, 388.

The LDM will try port 111, which is registered to the portmapper, if it can't 
bind to its well-known port, 388.

The IP address 128.117.149.64 corresponds to the default destination system for 
LDM statistics reports from the rtstats(1) utility. If you don't want that 
utility reporting back to us, then comment-out its EXEC entry in the LDM 
configuration-file, etc/ldmd.conf.
