Mounting NFS export suddenly does not work anymore - blame systemd

Mounting NFS exports has been something which "just worked" since... I can't even remember since when. 

But behold the great SystemD times when things which used to work stop working.

root@client:~# mount nfsserver:/export /mnt
Job for rpc-statd.service failed because the control process exited with error code. See "systemctl status rpc-statd.service" and "journalctl -xe" for details.
mount.nfs: rpc.statd is not running but is required for remote locking.
mount.nfs: Either use '-o nolock' to keep locks local, or start statd.
mount.nfs: an incorrect mount option was specified

I came across a similar problem on Unix Stackexchange which solved my problem:

root@client:~# systemctl enable rpcbind.service
Synchronizing state of rpcbind.service with SysV init with /lib/systemd/systemd-sysv-install...
Executing /lib/systemd/systemd-sysv-install enable rpcbind
root@client:~# systemctl start rpcbind.service
root@client:~# systemctl restart rpcbind.service

root@client:~# mount nfsserver:/export /mnt

root@client:~# mount | grep nfs
nfsserver:/export on /mnt type nfs (rw,relatime,vers=3,rsize=65536,wsize=65536,namlen=255,hard,proto=tcp,timeo=600,retrans=2,sec=sys,mountaddr=10.10.10.10,mountvers=3,mountport=635,mountproto=udp,local_lock=none,addr=10.10.10.15)

And yes, nfs-common package was already installed.
