Two more ideas (inspired by a similar thread on the Coot mailing list):

1. Change the configuration of the NFS automount daemon so it times
out faster; it may be looking for filesystems that only exist on our
machines (some stray references to these get stuck in the binary
installers - usually this doesn't cause problems).
2. Compile from source, which will avoid the problem that (1) would fix.
