Cryptographic File System. I use it to encrypt the directory on a USB
memory stick in which I keep my GnuPG key.
If you could test, to see whether or not this is a localised problem:
apt-get install cfs
cmkdir ~/.sec # Enter a passphrase
cattach ~/.sec secure # Enter the passphrase when requested
If all is well, the last command should result in /crypt/secure being
mounted. It is at that point that mine fails with the RPC error.

On the client. The server is the amd64 box.

OK - there is nothing like that getting in the way.

Starting nfs-common only reports statd; rpc.statd is running

No, there are no nfsd processes. In the log, on startup, I get:
nfsd: nfssvc: Function not implemented
In the kernel config, under Network File Systems, I have:
mountd wasn't running either (it comes after nfsd in
nfs-kernel-server). When I start it the message changes to "permission
denied", but it seems clear that the problem is with nfsd.
