First, you haven't provided any mount options.  The "-" means use
these as defaults, so you need an entry without a "-".  Also, I think
one "-..." overrides the previous one completely.

So, how about:

usr/local	opts:=rw;type:=nfs;rhost:=gabriella;rfs:=/usr/local

Then run "amd /usr/local /your/map/name -type:=direct".

One word of warning, however.  In NetBSD 1.0, I couldn't get direct
mount points to work for some reason.  I don't know if this has been
fixed or not.

If not, make /usr/local a real symbolic link into an automount
