mountd succeeds when you comment out "MOUNTD_NFS_V1="no"" only because
when you uncomment all three, rpc.mountd is called with "-N 1 -N 2 -N
3" which leaves it no protocol to use and mountd fails.

It looks like the devs forgot to modify /etc/init.d/nfs so that
mountd, statd, and lockd are not kicked off when the nfsv4-only option
is chosen.
