I think i found the answer; even though chkconfig reported that
"rpcbind" was setup to start in run level 3, for some reason it was
not running.

After this was started; I was able to mount the NFS share.

# who -r
         run-level 3  2012-02-16 19:19


# chkconfig --list rpcbind
rpcbind         0:off   1:off   2:on    3:on    4:on    5:on    6:off


# service rpcbind status
rpcbind is stopped


# service rpcbind start
Starting rpcbind:                                          [  OK  ]

Thanks,
