new portmap packages, testers wanted

As portmap is a dependency of the fam package, it is getting installed
on a wide range of desktop boxes. However, it is not necessary to have
it listen to the whole network, introducing a potential security
weakness for desktop users.

An updated package is available at
along with updated versions of packages which *do* require portmap to
listen to remote interfaces, such as NIS or NFS. This version will not
answer to requests from remote hosts unless told so in
/etc/default/portmap or by one of these packages.

If there are no objections, I'd like to upload all of that in a few
