In the meantime I discovered this in syslog:
Mar 30 09:57:05 hostname nfs-kernel-server[494]: Not starting: portmapper is not running ... (warning).

Any ideas what to look for for why rpcbind and/or portmapper and/or 
'whatever else' is not starting on boot? Most articles I've read on 
setting up nfs server make it sound like it should just work, and that 
has indeed been my experience on other systems, but on the RPi 
something seems to be missing or misconfigured.
