It seems that the code was released by the Portable NFS group at Sun
(portmap.c is in etc. Ah, those were the times!)
The distribution above was apparently intended for use on 4BSD. This
might explain why it does not match a code base derived from SunOS 5.
An announcement of the release was re-posted to Usenet in a digest
with message ID <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
