We use the StorNext distributed file system in which FreeBSD cannot

We want OS X to NFS export the filesystems to FreeBSD clients, which by
itself for example act as SMB servers using Samba 3.0.x.
You really don't want to export a filesystem which itself is being mounted
remotely. If you want to provide SMB filesharing for these files, run Samba
on the OS X machine(s) directly.
Knowing all the drawbacks including reduced bandwith, there are some
important organizational reasons, thus I want to do so. Moreover, Samba
ist just one application on the NFS clients, although an important one.
