agentx in services

Martijn van Duren-5
I currently don't see any reason for adding agentx over tcp support to
our daemons, but according to RFC2741 section 8.1.1 it should go over
"wel-known port 705".

Worth adding or just drop it?

Absolutely.

Having it in the file also makes sure that early call to rresvport(3),
bindresvport(3), or bindresvport_sa(3) won't allocate it before the
daemon is started locally.
