TightVNC over a custom port...

I know that TightVNC runs over 59xx and 58xx. But can you change that? I want to run TightVNC over port 80 because that is all my work has open (80, 21, 23 that I know of). Is this possible? If so, how would I go about doing that?

From "man Xvnc":
-rfbport port
Specifies the TCP port on which Xvnc listens for connections from viewers (the protocol used in
VNC is called RFB - "remote framebuffer"). The default is 5900 plus the display number.
