Description of problem:
Rdist fails to replicate named pipe files.
It prints an error message 'unkown file type'.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Use rdist to try to replicate a named pipe (created by 'mknod <name> p')
Actual Results: An error message is printed
Expected Results: Named pipe should be replicated.
As the error message clearly prints, rdist is not capable of replicating named
pipes as it can't cope with those files.
