Re: Installation error of nfs-common
I have the same experience when installing nfs-common from backports. Libtirpc1 is installed as a dependency, but portmap is uninstalled, which gives errors later on.

installing nfs-common from squeeze-backports with rpcbind (instead of portmap for IPv6 capability) breaks in the postinst step.
Setting up nfs-common (1:1.2.4-1~bpo60+1) ...
insserv: Service portmap has to be enabled to start service nfs-common
insserv: exiting now!
update-rc.d: error: insserv rejected the script header
dpkg: error processing nfs-common (--configure):
subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 1
Errors were encountered while processing:
The initscript has Required-Start $portmap, but the rpcbind initscript does not provide this. I'm not aware of an OR statement in the LSB headers, so I guess one option would be to backport rpcbind 0.2.0-5 which should fix that.
