OK, I decided to try to upgrade to 2.1.36 from 2.0.30. I've upgraded all
packages listed in the Changes file(including mount and installing the
kernel-side nfs daemons). With a little tweaking of the RH 4.1 rc files, I
get it to boot fine with one problem: I cannot mount NFS exports off of one
of my machines. The machine is an IBM RT (an old RISC workstation) running
something very close to BSD 4.3. On trying to mount from it I get something
like the following:

[root@KeyserSoze /]# mount /nfs/hosebeast
rpc mount: RPC: Authentication error; why = Invalid client credential
[root@KeyserSoze /]#

This works fine in 2.0.30. Unfortunately, the RT doesn't log any error
messages, and setting all debug flags with rpcdebug doesn't appear to affect
nfs mounts either. Has anyone else experienced this? Anyone have any ideas?
