I have recently upgraded one of my earlier NetBSD 0.9C boxes to a
version of NetBSD 1.0Beta as of about a week ago, and now it appears
that I can't get NFS to work between the upgraded machine and my other
NetBSD 1.0Beta machine.  This is the error I get:

stikker# mount -v rype:/usr/src /usr/src
rype:/usr/src on /usr/src: Bad address

Has anyone else seen something like this?  Before anyone asks, my
resolv.conf looks ok (only one "domain" and three "nameserver"
directives), and other applications are able to look up the name
"rype" just fine.  mount_nfs is also recently installed, my source
file for mount_nfs is dated Jun 25 1994.  I haven't built a kernel
with KTRACE in it for the mounting host (I am using the GENERICAHA
kernel with the irq for ed0 adjusted).

If I try to NFS mount from myself, I get another error:

rype# mount -v rype:/usr/src /mnt
nfs: can't access /usr/src: Address already in use

Isn't this supposed to work?

An excerpt from my process listing is:

   47 ??  Is     0:00.09 portmap
   54 ??  Is     0:00.02 nfsd: nfsd-master (nfsd)
   57 ??  I      0:00.00 nfsd: nfsd-srv (nfsd)
   58 ??  I      0:00.01 nfsd: nfsd-srv (nfsd)
   59 ??  I      0:00.01 nfsd: nfsd-srv (nfsd)
   60 ??  I      0:00.01 nfsd: nfsd-srv (nfsd)
   63 ??  I      0:00.01 nfsiod -n 4
   64 ??  I      0:00.01 nfsiod -n 4
   65 ??  I      0:00.01 nfsiod -n 4
   66 ??  I      0:00.01 nfsiod -n 4
 2549 ??  Is     0:00.03 mountd

and my /etc/exports says:

rype# cat /etc/exports
/usr -alldirs -maproot=0 stikker
/local -alldirs -maproot=0 stikker

This is on a pair of i486 boxes, if you didn't guess that already.
