No Rick, I do not have any code that uses the internals of the NFS
implementation, neither am I aware of any other software doing that.
There could be some in the ports collection, but even a quick scan
there yields nothing obvious.

My interest in this matter stems mainly from stumbling over the same
headers to be deleted during every make delete-old.

Kind regards,
