how does one consult /etc/nfsmount.conf when NFS mounting?



  undoubtedly a few more NFS-related questions, and here's one.  i
notice that the nfs-utils package supplies the conf file
/etc/nfsmount.conf.  so what exactly consults that file?

  the man page for that file refers to nfs(5) and mount(8), but the
man page for "mount" makes no mention of that file, while the man page
for "nfs" reads:

MOUNT CONFIGURATION FILE
       If  the  mount  command  is  configured to do so, all of the mount
       options described in the previous section can also  be  configured
       in  the /etc/nfsmount.conf file. See nfsmount.conf(5) for details.

  if it's configured to do so?  and how does one do that, since the
mount command doesn't seem to refer to that file.  so how are these
things hooked together?
