Note that FreeBSD's mountd doesn't allow exporting files by default,
you need the following option:
-r The -r option allows mount RPCs requests for regular files to be
served. Although this seems to violate the mount protocol speci-
fication, some diskless workstations do mount requests for their
swapfiles and expect them to be regular files. Since a regular
file cannot be specified in /etc/exports, the entire file system
that the swapfiles reside in will have to be exported with the
Note that this option wasn't supported in previous versions of
FreeBSD. It is in the 2.2 development branch, and was later merged
