At one time the V4: line was required to be at the end of the /etc/exports
file. (You could consider that a bug left over from the OpenBSD port, where
it was a separate section of /etc/exports.) I removed that restriction from
mountd.c at some point, but maybe after 8.1.

So, try just moving the "V4:" line to the end of /etc/exports.
