At the moment, nlm_advlock.c won't build without NFSCLIENT and
those functions are in nlm_advlock.c. (Because of a quirk related
to sys_ids used for locking, the experimental NFS server
"options NFSD" requires the nlm, which in turn
requires NFSCLIENT. NFSLOCKD shouldn't require NFSCLIENT, but it
uses a macro NFS_HZ which happens to use a variable in NFSCLIENT,
plus calls a function in NFSCLIENT, both of which need to be fixed.)

So, until I get the above fixed (I didn't realize it was broken
until your email, thanks for reporting it), you'll need:
options NFSCL
options NFSD

to get the kernel to build. It does work as a loadable module,
so you can run it without building a kernel with NFSCL, NFSD.
