I'd also be surprised myself if there was :)

The problem is, it's running just fine on the hosts inside the network, 
just not on the ipmasq'ing machine, so forwarding rules wouldn't apply 
anyway.

it's the same client, .ini-file, eveything.

I'll just include the .ini-file here for good measure:

[parameters]
id=alje at post1.tele.dk
threshold=25
count=0
hours=22
timeslice=65536
niceness=1
logname=rc5log
firemode=5
proxy=rc5europroxy.distributed.net
port=23
uuehttpmode=0

But since it doesn't seem to touch the network at all (tcpdump -i ppp0), 
that shouldn't matter anyway.

I was thinking.. Which minimum version of libaries are required? I'll 
just dump a list of my /lib directory (also for good measure :)

(i "grep -v"'ed all the links away, so don't begin to do some agonized 
screaming because of the small dirlist :-)

What else could influence the program? The version of the procfs? Does 
rc5v2 rely on external commands?

And is the source available somewhere for browsing?

Hope you can figure this one out, because I sure can't!

Best regards,
