I just added the line to /etc/services. Just make sure your package
depends on netbase (>=2.04).

You should use update-inetd or the DebianNet.pm perl module for it
(there are manual pages for both of them). For a simple example
just look at the biff package:

update-inetd --group MAIL --add "comsat         dgram   udp     wait    root    /usr/sbin/tcpd  /usr/sbin/in.comsat"

update-inetd --disable comsat
You can also use "update-inetd --remove ENTRY" to remove the entry if
you remove a package using --purge. You can use a regular expression

/etc/services shouldn't be modified by packages and /etc/inetd.conf
should only be modified using update-inetd or DebianNet.pm.
