You sure as hell don't want to remove netbase.
What I did was to use update-rc.d(8) to remove the symlinks (and kept a
copy of what it did in case I needed to put them back--see below), and
then stopped the /etc/init.d/portmap script and moved it to a safe place
(again, in case I wanted to put it back).
$ cat portmap.links
