Replying on my own post for archival reasons:
The error was in /etc/hosts.allow. I forgot to add a line "in.rshd: FQDN" in
hosts.allow on the machine I imaged and then used to install to a bunch of
other machines. Easy to miss though, there are a dozen or so other lines in
there allowing other daemons and stuff.

Fixing that, now "rsh remote-machine vmstat" works as expected.
