ok, got my DLD sources cdrom out, found the following which might help you:
portmap-4.0-10.src.rpm rpms/untars to
portmap_4 + a portmap.patch
README  1.6 96/05/31 15:52:57 has this information:

Origin and portability
The sources in this distribution are derived from code on the second
BSD networking tape, which was derived from Sun's RPCSRC 4.0 code, and
from Sun's TIRPC (transport-independent rpc) distribution. 
The code compiles fine with SunOS 4.1.x, Ultrix 4.x, HP-UX 9.x, AIX 3.x
and AIX 4.x, and Digital UNIX (OSF/1). See the notes in the Makefile.
Solaris 2.x (and other true System V.4 clones) use a different program
called rpcbind. I have written a replacement for that program, too.
The primary achive is

Casper H.S. Dik (casper at provided valuable information on
RPC security and tested an intermediate version of the portmapper with
SunOS 4.1.2.  Lyford D. Rich (rich at was helpful with
porting the daemon to Ultrix 3.x. Lionel Cons (cons at
solved the HP-UX problem. Fabrice Gonton (Fabrice.Gonton at
figured out how to make the program work on AIX 4.1, and Michael
Matthews took care of the DEC Alpha platform.
