inetd will wait for a very long time if there is no portmapper and you
try to start an RPC service (duh). While it's waiting, it won't
service any other requests, which will cause mysterious non-RPC
service failures, made more mysterious by them suddenly working a bit
after a reboot.

Perhaps it would be helpful to add inetd to the list of dependencies
for portmap in /etc/rc in a future release? Or perhaps not...
