On MacOS X 10.4, portmap is not running by default. You will need to modify the file

/System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.portmap.plist

and add

        <key>OnDemand</key><false/>

at the end. Then restart your machine, and portmap should be running.

If anyone has hints about how this could be done in a simpler manner, please let us know! Cheers.
