Yes.  As I said, the machine has been working just fine the way it is
setup for the longest time.  That is, all proper daemons are running and

The problem is not that my clients can't NFS mount the directory (that
is a consequence of the problem, but not the problem itself), the
problem is that the server can't even get the mount point into the list
of exports for the kernel.

What appears to be happening, as far as I can tell, is that since the
last reboot mount(2) fails on the filesystems in mountd(8) around
src/usr.sbin/mountd.c, line 2088, returning EINVAL.

Now the filesystem to be exported can be mounted and is entirely
functional, it just can't be exported.
