portmap was the key. I knew it wasn't running either, but couldn't
figure out why. Eric A. mentioned this as well, so I checked into it
again. Turns out, I had an /etc/rc.d/init.d/portmap, but there were no
sym links to any of the startup/shutdown directories. Weird. Anyway, I
duplicated the links as found on my other box, and all is well in NFS
