Bth, this script has three modes: YES, NO, AUTO, auto is default in 
which the check is done:

   mkdir -p /var/.diskless

If this fails a memory disk is created, else /var/.diskless is removed.

If you disable var in your rc.conf, then your nfs mounts fails.

Actually, I think the nfs mounts mentioned in your rc-script fails and 
are then mounted at a later stage - I guess you have your nfs-mounts in 
your /etc/fstab also, right?

Cheers, Erik
