[Gluster-users] glusterfs NFS dependencies (gentoo)

I am testing glusterfs-3.1.0 on Gentoo Linux, which is our preferred OS.
For correct NFS server functionality, some dependencies are required. I
understand that on supported distributions, all dependencies are already
installed by default. This is probably not the case of gentoo. First I
found that the glusterfs's NFS server still needs the portmapper:

[2010-10-22 16:05:20.469964] E
[rpcsvc.c:2630:nfs_rpcsvc_program_register_portmap] nfsrpc: Could not
register with portmap
[2010-10-22 16:05:20.470006] E
[rpcsvc.c:2715:nfs_rpcsvc_program_register] nfsrpc: portmap registration
of program failed
[2010-10-22 16:05:20.470038] E
[rpcsvc.c:2728:nfs_rpcsvc_program_register] nfsrpc: Program registration
failed: MOUNT3, Num: 100005, Ver: 3, Port: 38465
[2010-10-22 16:05:20.470050] E [nfs.c:127:nfs_init_versions] nfs:
Program init failed
[2010-10-22 16:05:20.470061] C [nfs.c:608:notify] nfs: Failed to
initialize protocols

Are there any further dependencies that need to be satisfied?
Replication and distribution works, but I still have issues when trying
to run gnome desktop on clients where /home is glusterfs-nfs mounted.
Conventional nfs works perfectly. The issues seem to be related to the
absent locking:

Oct 26 08:42:24 glc01 kernel: lockd: server gls13 not responding, still

On the server side, I still have log records like this one:

[2010-10-25 11:00:55.823932] E [rpcsvc.c:1249:nfs_rpcsvc_program_actor]
nfsrpc: RPC program not available

Which RPC program should I install? rpc.statd? Anything else? Thanks a lot.
