Extended attributes can be turned off during compile time for each
filesystem you mentioned. NFSv3 doesn't support them (yes, I do share
$PORTDIR). Also note that in some circumstances like when running in a
virtualized environment, imposing additional requirements on the kernel
might be problematic. It wouldn't be great to require extended
attributes for each and every Gentoo box...
