NFSv4 mounts succeed on 8.2, but fail on 8.3

i'm trying to mount some NFSv4 shares served by a Solaris 10 server on  
our FreeBSD boxes. On FreeBSD 8.2, the mounts succeeded after  
explicitly specifying the "resvport" mount option (the Solaris NFSd  
refuses requests from unprivileged ports).

On 8.3, mount requests are denied no matter what option i specify. The  
server always complains about the client issuing requests from an  
unprivileged port.

is mount_nfs no longer honoring the "resvport" option in 8.3?
anything else i might be missing?
