yum freezes on an NFS mount

On my Fedora box I have defined some NFS mount points like this in my
<hostname>:/path/to/exported/dir /nfs/mount-point nfs user,hard,intr 0 0
But sometimes the machine <hostname> is not powered up.
When I run "yum -y upgrade" it freezes on "Running transaction test" .
So I decided to strace it and I saw it stops at stat64("/nfs/mount-point",
My first question is :
- Why yum/rpm has to go in that directory ?
- What are the correct options to put in the fstab in order not to have any
process frozen when they try access an NFS directory that does not respond ?
