I just did a checkout of head/sys to an NFS mount (off of a FreeBSD
server) and it worked ok. I have no idea what the above means, but
it suggests that the NFS mount point returned some error?

A couple of questions:
- Is the failure intermittent?
- Did it occur right when the svn was started or part way through it?

I'd try again without the "soft,intr" options. In particular, "soft"
can cause an I/O syscall to fail when the server is slow to respond and
apps. don't expect that to happen.
