I believe the answer to your problem is in the previous line. SunOS can be
configured to require nfs requests to originate from a priviliged port on
the client machine. NetBSD doesn't use one by default. If you try
hairball% mount -o -P rocinante:/usr/local /mnt
it ought to work. 'man mount_nfs' for more info.
