Re: NFS portmap - is it really needed and if so where is it?

But it does.

  $ apt-cache show nfs-kernel-server  | grep --color nfs-common
  Depends: libblkid1 (>= 2.16), libc6 (>= 2.3), libnfsidmap2, libtirpc1, libwrap0 (>= 7.6-4~), nfs-common (= 1:1.2.5-4), ucf, lsb-base (>= 1.3-9ubuntu3)

and then

  $ apt-cache show nfs-common | grep --color rpcbind
  Depends: libc6 (>= 2.3), libcap2 (>= 2.10), libcomerr2 (>= 1.01), libdevmapper1.02.1 (>= 2:1.02.20), libevent-2.0-5 (>= 2.0.16-stable), libgssapi-krb5-2 (>= 1.6.dfsg.2), libgssglue1, libk5crypto3 (>= 1.6.dfsg.2), libkeyutils1, libkrb5-3 (>= 1.6.dfsg.2), libmount1 (>= 2.19.1), libnfsidmap2, libtirpc1, libwrap0 (>= 7.6-4~), rpcbind, adduser, ucf, lsb-base (>= 1.3-9ubuntu3), initscripts (>= 2.88dsf-13.3)

In recent versions it has changed dependencies from portmap to
rpcbind.  Not sure why or what is different between those programs but
in theory they are equivalent and provide the same functionality.
