The reference version is almost certainly just that, a reference 
version.  It is there to illustrate how the protocol works, and part of 
that is using the standard port number.  I suspect the maintainers of 
the source code would rather everyone used the full version.

However, although I haven't looked at the source code, I imagine the 
port number is easy to change without any really specific C language 
knowledge, provided you are prepared to recompile it.
