So the problem was specifically on the Archlinux client, and not on any 
others.  Those were some great suggestions, but alas they didn't fix the 
problem.  Apparently Archlinux did not start rpc.statd when loading it's 
  netfs daemon or when it loaded the portmap daemon.  So starting 
rpc.statd made all the difference in the world, and everything runs 
normally now.
