Nope, it's not there.

The only reason I mention this is that I did a build to see how things are
going and find that a feature is removed when I actually tested an nfs-based
install.  There is no code in choose_NFS_server() to handle conditionally
running netconfig.  It doesn't belong there anyway since the netfetch option
also needs to check if network is configured in the same fashion.  I fail
to see the problem with having an is_network_configured check in the
MED_nfs case.  Heck, it's good enough for the netfetch case right under

I get the feeling that we are talking about two different things. In the
meantime I'm checking the code back in to handle it since it doesn't work.
