Your missing the point here. No one is saying don't ship portmap or
nfs utilities. Just raising the question as to whether they should be
enabled by default.
I'm not sure how you interpreted that I want to stop ship nfs or
portmapper..... but let me
assure that is *NOT* the case... I just don't want to turn of a long
that third parties my or may not depend for simply no good reason....
