For now it's just in knfs (though it really doesn't make sense to have it in 
the server package as it should be running on a client). I'm not sure if it 
helps to run it with the user level nfsd though, and reading through 
/usr/doc/nfs-server/* seems to indicate that it doesn't.

Regarding the autofs troubles, try the new version of knfs (981122). I saw 
something on linux-kernel about some autofs troubles that were fixed by it 
(though it may have been Solaris' autofs that had the problems).
