Well, I rebooted last night with -r8192,-w8192 in each of the mounts' 
options, but this morning I awoke to another hang.  :-(

lychee:/usr/pkgsrc/packages/All /packages nfs ro,-r8192,-w8192 0 0
lychee:/space/distfiles /pkg_comp/distfiles     nfs 
rw,intr,soft,-r8192,-w8192 0 0
lychee:/space/packages-coconut /pkg_comp/packages       nfs 
rw,intr,soft,-r8192, -w8192 0 0

So, whatever it is, it's not the same thing.  :(
