I'm currently using unfsd (http://unfs3.sourceforge.net/) to mount stuff
in qemu. It works really well, but you have to do a "cp -rs
/nfsmount/path/to/source /path/to/some/local/fs" and build in
/path/to/some/local/fs. I'm also exporting the toolchain to the target via
It should work with most arches and it does not require root privileges
but you need to specify mountport=, port= and mountvers=3.
It wants to link to libfl. I'm building it statically with the cross
compiler just in case I need to export something from the target.
