Portmap runs as a daemon with a uid of 1. This uid is not configurable. To set up a user to match this uid, as the root user, run:
useradd -u 1 -g 1 -d /dev/null -s /bin/false bin
Install portmap with the following commands:
patch -Np1 -i ../portmap-5beta-compilation_fixes-3.patch && patch -Np1 -i ../portmap-5beta-glibc_errno_fix-1.patch && make
Now, as the root user:
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 also.
Install the /etc/rc.d/init.d/portmap init script included in the blfs-bootscripts-20060910 package.
