The problem is that the NFS-server package in Cygwin is orphaned since
the maintainer has moved on. If somebody is interested to pick up
maintainance of that package, you're welcome. See
http://cygwin.com/setup.html for more information. The cygport
packaging method is the preferred packaging method these days.
