You where right, Forest.  Adding
lash           14541/tcp                       # LASH client/server protocol

to /etc/services got lashd running.  I wasn't able to open lash_panel at 
first, due to some message about not being able to find localhost.  so 
then i added a local host definition to
/etc/hosts   localhost

and now I have a working lash setup.  Thanks!

something else is now quite troubling, though... it seems that all 
multimedia applications are now incapable of seeing the SIMD features of 
this PIII.  lashd, lash_panel, zynaddsubfx, and even mplayer all say

No supported SIMD instruction sets detected

I'm running gentoo and i've got all the relevant use flags turned on, 
sse, mmx...

any clues? how can this be broken system wide?
