Portmap reports decisions, it doesn't make them -- if portmap says
a service is on port N, then that service started up on port N and
then told portmap where it was.

You'll need to find out what service is in the way, and address it
directly, either by disabling it, starting it up after dovecot, or
reconfiguring it if possible.

If it's always ypserv and you're an NIS server, you'll want to pass
ypserv a '-p PORTNUM' argument.
