Comment (by bdubbs@…):

 The daemon log said something like:

 Aug 26 13:00:54 blfs rpcbind: cannot get uid of '': Success

 I took a look at the source :) and it appears that there is something
 wrong with the code that assumes the root user.  Try configuring with
 --with-rpcuser=root.  That seems to get it to run for me.  I haven't done
 any additional testing, but that may give you some help.

 Note that I did run with:  sudo /sbin/rpcbind -d and got a couple of

 can't get local ip4 address: Servname not supported for ai_socktype
 can't get local ip6 address: Servname not supported for ai_socktype

 I'll look at that next.
