Install portmap with the following commands:
patch -Np1 -i ../portmap-5beta-compilation-fixes-2.patch && patch -Np1 -i ../portmap-5beta-glibc-errno-fix.patch && make && make install
The above installation places executable portmap in /sbin. You may choose to move the file to /usr/sbin. If you do, remember to modify the bootscript.
Install the /etc/rc.d/init.d/portmap init script included in the blfs-bootscripts-5.1 package.
The portmap package contains portmap, pmap_dump and pmap_set.
