I checked the CVS repo at OpenBSD It looks like the -l -p
option interaction was pulled in when Eric Jackson's updates
for IPv6 support were added in Revision 1.21


The commit comments seem humorous (but only in hindsight):

"Import completely re-written netcat w/ support for IPv6.
very little usage has changed ...."

That and a hundred other web pages! ;-)
