Exporting NFS systems

When I initially configured the Debian system on this machine, I did
not intend to export any file systems using NFS.  Now I want to do
so.  Do I have to do any reconfiguration of the netstd package now?

I added appropriate entries to /etc/exports and I looked at
It appears that the entries for starting the nfsd and mountd have been
commented out as shown below.
 case "$1" in
	 echo -n "Starting remote filesystem services: "
 #	echo -n "nfsd " ; start-stop-daemon --start --quiet --exec ${NET}/rpc.nfsd
 #	echo -n "mountd " ; start-stop-daemon --start --quiet --exec ${NET}/rpc.mountd
 #	echo -n "ugidd " ; start-stop-daemon --start --quiet --exec ${NET}/rpc.ugidd

I could uncomment the line for mountd (and perhaps ugidd) then run
 /etc/init.d/netstd_nfs start
but I would prefer to do things in a Debianly-correct way if it
exists.  If I re-install the netstd package will it detect the entries
in /etc/exports and set up mountd to be started or do I need to do
something more sophisticated?
