Shot in the dark:

Possibly not only backports related as I found many problems with regular 
Squeeze and rpcbind over the past days. I think it's mainly caused by 
dependency booting and you need to either force old-style booting by touching 
/etc/init.d/.legacy-boot-order (I *think* this is the one) *or* change 
/etc/insserv.conf to have the line $portmap have both in it, i.e.
$portmap +portmap +rpcbind

at least for us this helped.
