The problem was actually that rpcbind didn't explicity set its v6 sockets
to v6-only, thus making the bind for v4 sockets fail, since they were
already listening to that address.

I thought I changed that a long time ago; I did the same thing for NFS
ages ago (since the code does IP-based access checks). But, apparently
I didn't. It's fixed in rev. 1.6 of usr.sbin/rpcbind/rpcbind.c

Note that this normally wasn't a problem, since v6only was either the
default *or* set in sysctl.conf after rpcbind had already been started.
