Got this one figured out finally. Just need to have the following lines in 
rc.conf:

nfs_client_enable="yes"
rpc_lockd_enable="yes"
rpc_statd_enable="yes"
rpcbind_enable="yes"

The clever bit that kept throwing me was needing to have the nfs client 
enabled.  Once that was in play both lockd and statd actually ran.  Geesh!
