For starters try "showmount -e the.freebsd.ip.address" on the Linux box
to see if the Linux box sees the NFS daemons on the FreeBSD machine.

mountd needs to be running on the FreeBSD host (apparently yours is
running). When /etc/exports changes mountd needs to be informed:
        kill -s HUP `cat /var/run/mountd.pid`

Also at least in the past Linux distributions defaulted NFS to
non-reserved ports. Your Linux may not be talking to the same ports as
the FreeBSD machine is listening.
