Ok, I don't have access to any solaris system for now, but somebody
sent me the mount_nfs(1M) man page :-). We would then use proto=
{tcp,tcp6,udp,udp6} options and use getnetconfigent("...") to get
the struct netconfig, right? That would also obsolete ALTF_TCP, since
we could specify proto={tcp,tcp6}, or do I missed something about that?
