At first glance I suspect you have nfs v4 support and the server does not like it. The USE flag changed at 1.1.6-r1 from nonfsv4 to nfsv4 so if you did not change USE you will get the exact opposite support between the earliest and most recent version in portage. <pet hate> Don't you just hate negative USE flags on the lines of no* ? You have to switch then on to not get something. Far better to have a positive flag and enable it by default in the profile. Not to mention the confusion that changing it later causes, witness this case here.
