You had the right hunch, the fact that /usr/ports was mounted from another 
machine does matter. Autoconf needs full filesystem locking support, so you 
need to either enable the NFS file locking daemon (rpc.lockd on freebsd) on 
*both* the client and the server or use a local ports-tree.

Or, probably the easiest solution, install nrpe from a package.
