As discussed on current-users back in February, the mdnsd support added to 
NetBSD a few months earlier does not seem to be fully integrated into the 

In particular using an entry like

      q4.local:/emini    /q4/emini     nfs    rw

in /etc/fstab fails to mount the file system because mountall runs before mdnsd 
as can be verified by rcorder.

Change /etc/rc.d/mountall as follows:

 diff /etc/rc.d/mountall .
< # REQUIRE: mountcritremote named mdnsd ypbind
> # REQUIRE: mountcritremote named ypbind

(It was also mentioned in the above-mentioned email conversation that we may 
consider having mountall depend on a virtual services RESOLVER which in turn 
depends on named, mdnsd, and ypbind -- this is relevant if more name resolvers 
are expected to be added in the future or if several rc.d scripts needs to 
patched to add mdnsd).
