Ok, after your first message I put 2+2 together and realized that I was
simply short on VM.  After doubling the size of the swap partition on the
glibc box, it worked as it should.  The installation guide MUST explain
clearly explain the VM constraint, BTW.  The need for VM >= data partition
size is by no means intuitive.

At any rate, I'm up and running over 100Mb ethernet.  The transaction
latency for creating/removing individual files is still quite high - much
more noticable than for NFS over the same link.  No problems to this
point, but a full kernel compile usually breaks things quickly <g>.

Thanks for the hints!
