Jest to erase all doubts, here is the /etc/exports file on april:

			-- A.
# /etc/exports: the access control list for filesystems which may be exported
#               to NFS clients.  See exports(5).

Funny.  When I cut and pasted it into this page if but a line break in
front of the entry for in teh commented-out line.  No such line
break appears in the actual file (I checked using emacs).  It inserted no
such line break in the non-commented-out lines.
