Re: should inetd require rpcbind?

but, if I want to run inetd without RPC entries, I'd rather that rpcbind
didn't start, and that it wasn't required to be installed.

    ef> So, should inetd directly REQUIRE rpcbind?

If rpcbind isn't installed, or isn't started, will this cause it to fail?

    ef> Should nfslocking also explicitly REQUIRE rpcbind?
