The ebuild should no longer set


Another minor redundancy is,


in light of

  --with-rpcuser=ARG      use ARG for RPC [default=root]

    net-nds/rpcbind: use default values for "--bindir" and "--with-rpcuser"
    Upstream commit 9afccfc moves the rpcbind executable from the bindir
    to the sbindir, meaning that we don't have to override the bindir in
    our ebuild if we want rpcbind installed to e.g. /usr/sbin. This commit
    drops the "--bindir" flag from src_configure, so the default will be
    used. As a side effect, this will place the rpcinfo executable in the
    bindir where it belongs, allowing us to fix things like bug 457042.
    Our ebuild was also passing "--with-rpcuser=root" explicitly, even
    though that is the default value. This commit removes the redundancy.
    Package-Manager: Portage-2.3.19, Repoman-2.3.6
