Subject: NetBSD NSF server with OS X NFS clients

NFS was working just fine between NetBSD systems and an embedded linux
box. Then a Macbook entered the house and the problems began. First,
I had to allow mount requests from ports >=1023. Then, I noticed that
files with umlaut characters (ö, ä, Ö, Ä on my case) in their names
cannot be accessed by OS X. Some kind of a Latin-1 vs. UTF thing.
I believe this problem is in OS X and not in NetBSD, but I haven't
found a solution to this problem (only a few people asking the same
question), so I'm posting here - are there any OS X users here to
help? Renaming the files is not an option, neither do I want to use
samba instead of NFS.
(I _knew_ Macbook was too good to be true....)
Thanks a lot!
