Because then the /var/autofs/net/ filesystem will work after you run
portmap, with no other steps needed.

You don't have to copy the file and kill the link first?  Hell, next
time I should RTFM.  :-)

But it'd still be nice if it was shipped already edited; I can't think
of a reason not to, other than the fact that it discourages people from
forgetting to start up portmap.  I definitely agree with not starting
portmap automatically.
