[rtmpdump] Rtmpdump just stream metadata / Solaris

I am looking into using rtmpdump to fetch stream metadata for monitoring
We are planning on using it on Solaris 10

Little bit of fiddling with Makefile allowed me to compile it :
The CFLAGS needs -std=c99 as compiler stops when including sdtbool.
The LDFLAGS needs -lnsl -lsocket to link the network libs

Now, as haven't touched C code in ages. I'm a bit struggling to modify
rtmpdump enough to get it list the metadata and then stop the stream (
as we have no need for anything more ).

So would it be possible if you could help me and point me how to modify
the code or if you are feeling generous add another command switch (
like --metadataonly ) and have it print only that. 

And I don't even dare to think that you could implement Nagios Check
Plug-in exit codes ... which would be amazing!
