You don't have to do anything actually. FreeBSD serves both NFSv2 and
NFSv3 clients by default:
$ rpcinfo -p | grep nfs
100003 2 udp 2049 nfs
100003 3 udp 2049 nfs
100003 2 tcp 2049 nfs
100003 3 tcp 2049 nfs
You can disable NFSv3 with the -2 option to mountd, but if you have to
do that, then your Linux distro is extremely broken and you should have
your vendor fix it.
