On NetBSD, the filehandles will be the same for v2 and v3. In general,
it is undefined if filehandles will be the same for different NFS
versions on the same server (they can be; v3 filehandles can be
larger), so you can't make this assumption for other servers. But,
that doesn't seem to be a problem in your case, since you're 
running on a NetBSD server.
