This is a bit tougher to do cleanly than I first thought it would
be.  I have successfully done plain upgrades over NFS-mounted
directories (which I had never done before), but so far I can't
get mount_nfs to work when I boot up off a 64-bTT kernel (to do
the installworld for that kernel).

Right now I'm using 64-bTT versions of mount, mount_nfs, ifconfig,
and rpcbind.  But when I try to mount_nfs the directories I want,
I get:
RPCPROG_NFS: RPC: Port mapper failure - RPC: Unable to receive

and the mount_nfs command hangs.  I'm not out-of-ideas yet, but
I need to rebuild the world again, so it isn't likely that I will
have the solution this weekend.
