 nfs exports settings

Hi there,

at least for 4.8-STABLE one might note, that if you installed the games, the installation of fortune will try to write to the NFS mount /usr/obj, and bring the build to a screeching halt in case it fails. (I'm using the standard make installworld).

I did not check for other anoyances like this, because I simply added -maproot=root to /etc/exports.

I hate to do this, so if someone has suggestions on how to installworld without the need to allow write-access, I'd be most thankful. I'll post this question to the support area, also. Please followup there.

Interesting, I upgraded 4.8 on several machines tonight, all from an NFS mount. No problem with games.

I wonder what is different with your installation.
