    Hmmm, I had thought about the firewall configuration before, but never
    really checked it.

    I just disabled the firewall entirely, and now I get an immediate
    "Permission denied" failure:

       sunhost# mount frankfurt:/export /mnt/frankfurt
       nfs mount: frankfurt:/export: Permission denied

    I am doing the mount above as root, so the "Permission denied" condition
    probably is coming from the server end, not the client end.

    Still a bit baffled.
