For ntpdate there is an easy workaround: just use ntpd -g.
But it is even worse for an NFS client when mount will fail "sometimes".
I agree with the overall notion that we should run things in parallel
where possible, but in this case it is not that simple as it looks at
Also I wonder whether sysinst is the right place for it, maybe rc.conf
defaults should be picked more intelligently, so things still work right
when the user adds an NFS mount to /etc/fstab later.
