RE: nfs server ported?

Rico was kind enough to pass along to me his work on the
sunrpc and universal nfs server.  I did a bit of work on
it - got it to the point where I could build sunrpc and
the nfs daemons cleanly; build installation tarballs;
and use those to install and start an nfs server that
exported an nfs share.

Work pressure eventually caught up with me, and I wasn't
able to make any forward progress, so I passed the bundle
o' joy on to Matt Rice.  From what I understand, he did a
more thorough job porting sunrpc, but hasn't yet had much
of a chance to look at the nfs server.

Subject: nfs server ported?

Back in January on this list, there was a short discussion of porting
nfs servers, userspace and otherwise.  Is there one available now?  I
tried to compile the userspace server from but it
needs a lot of headers under /usr/include/rpc which aren't there in Cygwin.

    Subject: RPC and NFS port for cygwin

    I have search high and low for a port of ONC/SUN RPC to cygwin.  Alas I can
    find only the ONCRPC port for Windows NT that does not even support
    compiling using gcc.  So I ported SUNRPC 4.0.  Its seems to be working
    however would anybody be interested in polishing this effort?  or maybe
    there is already a better cygwin RPC port?

    PS. I also ported the userland NFS server.
