Thank you.

I think that's a bug. If you haven't already done so, would you please
bugzilla it? I do exactly as you do, and nfs mount a directory with
scripts, files and other goodies for %post processing.

Also, does shutting off portmapper affect an NFS mounted installation?
I recall doing several installations of FC6 and not having any
problems with it (but no %post processing on those).
