Well, actually, nfsd does always run on port 2049 -- through NFSv3. If
it doesn't, then it violates RFC1813, section 2.3. And the NFSv4
implementation for Linux is still in pre-alpha at U. of Michigan.
But you'd need the portmapper running for other reasons, such as mountd,
lockd, statd, etc.

make cups of tea, floss the cat, fluff the geraniums, open the kitchen window
and scream out it with operatic force, volume, and decorum, and then return to
the vexed glowing letters calmer of mind and soul?" -- The Cube, forum3000.org
