whence RPCBIND_ARGS?



  i'm tracing the execution of rpcbind on my f12 system, and in the
common code, i read:

prog="rpcbind"
[ -f /etc/sysconfig/$prog ] && . /etc/sysconfig/$prog

while in the start() function, there is:

daemon $prog $RPCBIND_ARGS $1

  i'm curious about this since:

1) there's no apparent documentation for setting/using $RPCBIND_ARGS

2) there's no /etc/sysconfig/rpcbind file for initial config

3) there's no mention of RPCBIND_ARGS in the rpcbind man page

  admittedly, that doesn't make any of this *wrong*, it just seems
that $RPCBIND_ARGS is kind of hanging out there, without anyone making
an effort to explain what might be done with it or why it would be
useful.  thoughts?
