While in netbsd-2 I was able to use showmount -e for IPv6 NFS servers, but not 
to actually mount shares (rpc errors), in netbsd-3 (and -current) even 
showmount is no longer working. Anyone is using NFS over IPv6 ? If so, do you 
have any hints ?

Here is exactly what happens:

On netbsd-2:

# showmount -e 2001:618:423:beef::5
Exports list on 2001:618:423:beef::5:
/usr/release/binary/sets           Everyone
/disk3/public             2001:623:418::
# mount_nfs 2001:618:423:beef::5:/disk3/public /nfs
mount_nfs: rpcbind to nfs on server: RPC: Program not registered

On -current and netbsd-3:
# showmount -e 2001:618:423:beef::5
showmount: Can't do Exports rpc: RPC: Unknown host

Thank you,
