I've redirected this to the Cygwin mailing list -
other folks may have these questions as well.

You can find documentation for most packages under
Cygwin-specific documentation (including the nfs-server
docs) are located under /usr/share/doc/Cygwin.
Man pages are also provided - 'man nfsd', 'man mountd',

Could you please post the output from running mount?

You can restart mountd and nfsd, ex:
cygrunsrv --stop "mountd"
cygrunsrv --stop "nfsd"
cygrunsrv --start "mountd"
cygrunsrv --start "nfsd"
Or you can just send the processes a SIGHUP to tell them
to reread the exports file:
kill -s 1 <mountd-pid>
kill -s 1 <nfsd-pid>

Location of docs and man pages I've already described.
No, you shouldn't need to install the source, unless
you want to work on providing a patch for something :-)
