The solution to this proved quite simple, once I grasped the fact that all
routers on a common network have to route for that network (duhh!!!) as
well as any others that they may handle.

So the ripd.conf file looks like this:

! -*- rip -*-
! RIPd configuration file
hostname a.b.domain.tld
password xxxxxxxx
enable password xxxxxxxx

router rip
  network 2aa.bbb.ccc.0/24

log stdout

And it works.
