No need to disable rpc.statd though I don't know if any other programs
request monitoring. The issues you'll run into is simply a lack of any
locks on the mounted drive. This can easily lead to file corruption if
multiple programs or multiple instances of a single program change the
same file at the same time. Many programs will use NFS-safe lockfiles
if configure to do so, which is often a useable workaround in a
lockd-free world. If you're only using the files read-only, or only a
single process uses files on the mount at a time (on *all* systems) then
there's no issue at all.
