portmap is a part of the ONCRPC collection of software for implementing remote procedure calls between computer programs.

portmap is use widely by NIS & NFS and various other systems.

Some make variable can be used to control compilation:

NO_TCP_WRAPPER= if non-empty, doen't use tcp_wrappers
USE_DNS= if set, tcp_wrappers can check peers based on hostname
as well as IP address. This should only be used if you
are certain that gethostbyname will never trigger a
called to portmap (as it might if 'nis' is used for hostnames).
RPCUSER= is set, portmap will use getpwnam to find the user for
that user, and will setuid to that user before listening
for incoming messages
DAEMON_UID= Can be set to a number to override the default UID
to setuid to. Default is '1'.
DAEMON_GID= As above, but for setgid.
