    This doesn't make any sense to me at all.
    You can certainly have the NFS client compiled and even running
    without lockd running (if you mount with "-o nolock") and in that case
    you are free you register your owner user-space NLM server (though I'm
    not sure what good it would do you).

    And if you want to mount an NFS filesystem without "-o nolock", then
    you really need the kernel lockd running, or locking will not work.

    Can you explain what you are trying to do - I'm curious.

    Uhm... Do you mean

    +#ifndef NLM_PROGRAM

    ?? Still not sure how that helps.
