I changed /etc/fstab on the sun4m machine to:

roothog:/u2/netbsd_2.0 /usr/src nfs rw,-r=1024,-w=1024

That seems to do the trick. The SS5 is grinding away at:

sh ./ -O /usr/src/obj build

Where /usr/src/obj is on the NFS server.

The first thing I had to do was give up using vr0 on the -current box and
switch to a 3COM 3C905 that I had lying around.

Initially, this was motivated by the fact that some Quantum 2.1 and 3.0
gig SCSI drives don't like tagged queueing. Unfortunately, I have a few of
these drives, which will be relegated to use on sun4c and sun3 boxes.

The failure mode can look like either a bad drive or bad memory.
