# - ability to perform NFS over port 4045. Solaris nlockmgr service will
# accept any NFS packets and always listens on port 4045, probably because
# it's a direct path into the kernel like NFS is. This allows you to

Cute. I added a -P option to mount/handle so you can specify any port.
And by popular demand, it also runs on Linux (2.0.33 and redhat 5).
The portmapper enhancements require more work. Have to think about that.
