remove/disable portmap by default on official releases

Playing around with the device I saw portmap running. For development purposes
with nfs this makes perfect sense. However we should be prepared for
removing/not starting it by default on the final user releases as it eats up
about 400Kb of RAM.

Is it really 400k?

this is a real bug, in fact a potential security issue. Any sane linux system
should not have any network services running which are not used.

out of security reasons I strongly recommend that this bug is fixed.

I think the question is shall we enable nfs support by default or not? 'nfs' is enabled in angstrom.inc by default.

i think portmap (like any other non-sshd service) should not be running
by default on any mobile phone, unless you explicitly put it into a
'development mode' which activates portmap, gdbserver, etc.
