I think I traced it to a variable overflow in nfs_vfsops.c:nfs_statfs().
I have a 1.4TB filesystem that occasionally (but not always) goes
negative too.  It just affects the results of the statfs/statvfs()
calls, so the only thing it really hurts is 'df'.

Filesystem        Size   Used  Avail Capacity  Mounted on
novell1:/vol1     1.4T   1.1T   314G    78%    /a/novell1/vol1
