fsck attempted on NFS root?

I just built -current (5.99.11) for macppc from sources updated this
morning (27 April 2009).  I've been net-booting and NFS-rooting the
target machine for well over a year and this is the first time I saw
the rc scripts attempt to fsck the NFS root directory.  Transcript:

root file system type: nfs

Starting root file system check:
Can't stat `server:/path/to/root' (No such file or 
directory)server:/path/to/root: file system is mounted read-write on /; not

terminated abnormally, going to single user mode
Enter pathname of shell or RETURN for /bin/sh:

If I simply 'exit' the single-user shell, the system seems to continue
coming up in multi-user mode.

The server is running NetBSD-4.0_STABLE/i386 built from sources updated
two weeks ago.

Very strange.
