What I have found is that they know the true path. So, if you nfs_mount,
it has to have the same path as the system that built it. I mount fs'es
all of the time but I mount the fs as /usr/src and /usr/ports on both
machines. Then, when you cd /usr/ports/x11 and do a pwd, you see what
you cded into.
