Without looking, I think you hit the same issue I found yesterday on our 
compute nodes. If makefile like dependency boot is enabled and you have the 
package "portmap" installed, statd fails to start upon booting. The solution 
is to either install the package "rpcbind" instead and/or ensure that 
dependency booting is disabled by running

touch /etc/init.d/.legacy-bootordering

Hopefully, this will help.
