Hmm, that depends. If all your mount points are directly under the
root you could use a wildcard key. If I read the autofs(5) manpage right,

*	&:/&

would give you /automountpoint/hostname/path. Also, you might not be able
access files located directly in the root on the client. Unfortunately,
autofs doesn't support nested mounts, so /usr and /usr/local on separate
filesystems would fail with this scheme (or so says the manpage anyway).
