rpcbind for Debian
------------------
Since version 1.2.5 due to security concerns upstream has turned off
the remote calls functionality by default and added a configuration
flag at build time to enable it.
This functionality caused rpcbind to open up random listening ports.
With remote calls turned off rpcbind stops to receive any broadcast query
causing breakage on systems depending on this feature, e.g., NIS systems.

On Debian systems the remote calls can be turned on at run-time using
the command line argument 'r'. See rpcbind(8) for more details.
