I have no interest in running NFS (AKA "no file security") on my 
FreeBSD boxes, but have  noticed that FreeBSD 6.x seems to start a 
daemon called "nfsiod" by default even when it is not configured as 
an NFS server or client. What's the best way to instruct the system 
not to start these processes, which take up resources and may be a 
security risk? Why isn't this done at sysinstall time?
