portmapper running, but portmap package not installed

"rpcinfo -p" shows portmapper is running on 111, but i later find out, that "apt-get install portmap" proceeds with an installation, ie "portmap" package is not installed. How can this happen?

You can get a list of running processes with
ps -auxwwf
This will show processes listenning sockets on tcp&udp ports:
netstat -ltup | grep :sunrpc
(here display limited to portmap port)

To check the status of the package portmap:
apt-cache policy portmap
