Mounting network share with Arch Linux: need rpcbind at boot time


Hello to all. I was having trouble mounting an NFS network share (on a NAS) on Arch Linux running on a Wandboard. This is a small dedicated headless system that has one function - running Logitech Media Server (LMS). The Linux implementation is called SqueezeOnArch (SOA).

I found a solution: The NAS (a Netgear ReadyNAS NV+) uses NFS version 3, and Arch Linux requires the rpcbind service to mount an NFS3 share. With rpcbind started, I can mount the share. But the problem is that the SOA implementation of Linux doesn't start rpcbind by default.
Now I need to figure out how to make sure that the rpcbind service is enabled and started at boot, or at some point before the share is mounted. Any suggestions are welcome.

Thanks in advance
Les

This is one of theses things that used to be easy on init. Root needed to insert the relevant mount command into rc.local. Now, I suppose that you have to do it with an option to mount, what option I do not know.
Does anyone know how to do it in systemd ?

-Update- I mounted the share via the frontend that's provided by SOA and it seems to have taken care of things. It wrote a line to fstab to mount the disk at boot time, but what it did elsewhere to ensure that rpcbind starts I don't know. I'll try to figure it out and report back.
