Seems NFS clients should be fine in jails. I can also see that
I've not kept up with NFS under FreeBSD. Apparently, we've moved
on to  'rpcbind' (server side) instead of 'portmap'.

This URL, http://www.freebsddiary.org/nfs-portmap.php , seems to
suggest it's a matter of adjusting the hosts.allow on the server, but
I wonder if you have configuration access to the NFS server in
