Now I know portmap an nfs-common weren't the problem. The problem was
that the loopbackinterface didn't come up automatically at boot. I set
it to

auto lo

and now everything works perfect. So the problem was that statd
couldn't contact portmap because of the missing loopback device.

I wonder why loopbackdevice isnt't configured to come up automatically
at boot after a fresh hd installation.
