Reminds me:

I vaguely remember needing to do mount tricks with 32bit clients
(NetBSD-i386) vs. 64bit server (NetBSD-Sparc)... "back then" at
work, but still running, there's one active emeritus remaining in
that work group.

Let me check whether that's still in the configuration... yes, but
the special option is on the client side, so a different case?
Here's the client's amd map file for /home

/defaults       type:=nfs;opts:=rw,hard,intr,nodev,nosuid,xlatecookie,nocoredump
theory          rhost:=theory;rfs:=/export/home/3;opts:=xlatecookie,rw,hard,intr,nodev,nosuid

Nothing special on the server (NetBSD-Sparc64)
