How about patching the /etc/rc.d/nfsd script like this:

                if checkyesno nfs_server_newnfs_only; then
                        echo 'NFS server serving only newnfs (NFSv4)=YES'
                        sysctl vfs.newnfs.server_min_nfsvers=4 > /dev/null

It checks if there is a 
set in rc.conf, and if so, it runs the sysctl command.

But, after testing, it is too late (nfsd starts with NFSv3 support). Any idea where to put that patch  ?
