The dependencies state that rpcbind is needed, so it gets installed instead

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

as noted in my mail about the recent upload of nfs to backports [0], I believe the missing piece is:

 printf '$portmap\trpcbind\n' > /etc/insserv.conf.d/rpcbind

(see http://bugs.debian.org/565201 for more details)

You might also need to run:

 insserv --verbose --force --default rpcbind

afterward to touch up your sysv initscript links.

Could you report back if that works for you (or doesn't)?

Sorry for the hassle on this; i'm not sure the best way to resolve the matter cleanly yet, but i'm open to suggestions.
