IIRC, the simple shell session you can start in the fixit menu
contains a command mount_nfs.  That way, you should be able to mount a
remote filesystem to get more commands from than are available in that
bare minimum shell.  (I always regretted it does not contain a
"mount_ufs" command.)

Never trust an operating system you don't have sources for. ;-)
