And what's your fstab? (NetBSD's nqnfs has some strange interworkings

- Does exporting /var *work*?
- If /var is a separate partition, does exporting /var -alldirs work?
- Does exporting /var/mail as the *first* line of /etc/exports work?
- Is /usr/src/local a separate partition as defined by fstab?
