A number of people have reported this problem, and it seems to be caused
by the portmapper being started too late. Error 111 is "connection
refused". Are your startup scripts trying to bring up NFS too early?

Do you mean the linux-nfs package? It's needed if you want to use knfsd,
but you don't need to compile the kernel directory.
