Is there a reason that portmap opens a TCP socket bound to INADDR_ANY,

does this.

-h Specify specific IP addresses to bind to for UDP requests. ^^^

Also, given a machine with two interfaces, and
I've also noticed that adding

  portmap : : allow
  portmap : ALL : deny

to the /etc/hosts.allow file will not block this TCP port from being
connected to via the interface.

portmap doesn't use tcpwrappers (hosts.allow) but hosts_access.

I'd say this is a bug. Am I being too anal here?

yes :)
